(1901 



with a coinmuniciiLioii from the Hnn of Aldis. 
Aldis & Northcoie. relative to the proposed 
construction of a building 139 feet and 6 
inches high on the northeast corner of 
Wabash avenue and Monroe street and an 
ordinance granting Arthur T. Aldis the per- 
mission so to build. The reasons for this re- 
quest are given succinctly in the attached 
couinmnication. I would therefore ask the 
passage of the order without the customary 
reference to a committee. 

Respectfully, 

Cautek H. Harrison, 

Manor. 



November 6, 1901. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor, and the City 
Council of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— We desire to build for our 
clients a handsome ten-story fire-proof build- 
ing at the northeast corner of Wabash avenue 
and Monroe street. We have m de arrange- 
ments with a prospective tenant, who will 
take all the upper floors of the building, pro- 
vided these flo6rs (ran be made of a sufficient 
height for mercantile purposes, viz., 11 feet 
<i inches in the clear. The owners have agreed 
to build under these conditions. In order to 
obtain this result it will be necessary to build 
a building 139 feet 6 inches high at the 
highest point of the sustaining wall. This is 
9 feet and 6 inches higher than the present 
building ordinance provides. It will there- 
fore be necessary to get an ordinance through 
the Council to permit the erection of this 
building. 

Our reasons for thinking that this should 
be granted are the following: 

1. The ordinance was intended to allow 
the construction of ten-story buildings, but 
it was figured that 10 feet and 6 inches was 
suflScient height in the clear on the upper 
floors. This is true in office buildings, but it 
is not true fer the mer-cantile purposes for 
which this building will be used. In allowing, 
therefore, an excess of 9 feet and 6 inches 
over the building ordinance we are not asking 
for any more stories and are not altering the 
spirit and intention of the ordinance. 

2. Wabash avenue is an unusually wide 
street, and the question of injuring light 
does not cut the same figure. 



y. iSuch a building would replace the pres- 
ent old and non-fireproof building with a 
moiern and absolutely fireproof building, 
which would be a credit and, we hope, an 
©rnament to the city. 

4. From the increased value of such a 
building the city would derive more taxes. 

5. The erection of such a building involves 
a large expenditure of money in Chicago, 
and provides a large amount of work, all of 
which helps the prosperity and business of 
the city. 

In addition to these reasons is the general 
one that the erection of so fine a building 
will in some degree help the depressed con- 
dition of the real estate market, and show 
that there are investors who have confidence 
in the prosperity of Chicago and of its real 
estate. 

Ordinances have been passed within the 
last year allowing buildings of more than 
ten stories, and exceeding the present limita- 
tion. We simply wish to build the ten stories 
originally contemplated in the ordinance, but 
to make the ceilings of the upper stories a 
little higher than usual in oflSce buildings, so 
as to he suitable for mercantile purposes. 

The owners and the tenant are prepared to 
close the bargain and proceed at once, if the 
ordinance can be passed on Monday evening. 
If not, we fear that it will be impossible to 
meet the tenants' requirements. 

W^e beg to thank you for the courteous at- 
tention which you have given to this matter, 
and remain, 

Respectfully yours, 

Aldis, Aldis, Northcote & Co.

To the Ebnorable, tJie City Comicil: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith a cora- 



munication from the City Electrician in re- 
gard to various telegraph companies doing 
business in Chicago without proper authority 
from your Honorable Body, and would re- 
spectfully suggest its reference to your Com- 
mittee on Gas. Oil and Electric Light for 
immediate action. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Ifayor. 



Department of Electricity, ) 
Chicago. 111., Nov. llth, 1901. ] 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor of Chicago, 
City Hall: ■ 

Dear Sir— I submit herewith some infor- 
mation regarding the pending ordinance of 
the Printing Telegraph News Company. 

Early in 1898 you instructed me to make a 
report of the companies furnishing electrical 
service without proper authority f rona the 
the City Council. I found among many 
others the Printing Telegraph News Com- 
pany, whose service consisted of stock quo- 
tations and general sporting and financial 
news. They placed instruments in different 
buildings for registering this news and con- 
nected the machines with the central ofiice, 
renting conduit space for the reception of 
their wires from the Chicago Sectional Un- 
derground Conduit Company. 

On being notified that a franchise was 
necessary to enable them to transact this 
business they made an application for a fran- 
chise with the following result: 

Ordinance introduced March 7,.1898^.gage 
1878. 

Ordinance placed on file. May 1st, 1899, 
page 200. 

Ordinance taken from file December llth, 
1899, page 1869. /v ..^; . 

Subsequently placed on file in general 
order. 

Ordinance taken from file^ June 18th, 1900, 
page 985 . 

New ordinance introduced July 9th, 1900, 
page 813. 

This last ordinance is before the ^C(),W- 
mittee, having been referred back to tEeai at 
I the last meeting of the City Council. 



November 11, J 



1266 



In each instance, as above outlined, the oi-- 
dinance was acted upon by the Gas, Oil and 
Electric Light Committee. 

About one year ago the Printing Telegraph 
News Company was combined with the Type 
News Telegraph Company and is now Icnown 
as the "National Telegraph News Company," 
which is continuing the same class of busi- 
ness that the Printing Telegraph News Com- 
pany formerly carried on and under the same 
conditions of operation. The conduits for 
the reception of the wires are rented from 
the Chicago Sectional Underground Conduit 
Company. The Nat'onal Telegraph News 
Company has no legal right to do business in 
the city or to rent conduits from the Chicago 
Sectional Underground Conduit Company 
until the conduct of the business has first 
been authorized by the City Council. 

The Cleveland Telegraph Company, which 
made a specialty of furnishing Board of 
Trade quotations, also rents ducts from the 
Chicago Sectional Underground Company 
and has no warrant to do business of that 
character in the city without proper authori- 
zation in the form of a franchise granted by 
the Council. They were organized about a 
year and one-half ago and are still conduct- 
ing the business of printing quotations in 
offices throughout the business district. 

The Gold Stock Telegraph Company fur- 
nishes printed quotations in a manner similar 
to the above mentioned companies, but gives 
the following service: 

New York stock quotations, New York 
eotton quotations, Chicago Board of Trade 
quotations, Chicago stock quotations, 
general sporting and financial news. 

The Gold Stock Telegraph Company is 
owned by the Western Union Company and 
handles its business over their wires, renting, 
in some instances, duct space from the Chi- 
cago Sectional Underground Conduit Com- 
pany. 

Kindly advise me what course you wi h pur- 
sued with regard to the Cleveland Company 
and the National Telegraph News Company, 
both of which require authorization from the 
City Council to transact the character of 
business in which they are at present engaged. 

I find that the (Chicago Sectional Under- 
ground Conduit Company is renting duct 
space to the following companies: 

Chicago Electric Protective Association, 



which does a private police and watch service 
and has no franchise. 

Printing Telegraph News Company (now 
National Telegraph News Company), which 
conducts a business as previously outlined 
and has no franchise. 

Bankers and Merchants' Telegraph Com- 
pany, which is a part of the Postal Telegraph 
Company. 

Chicago and Milwaukee Telegraph Com- 
pany, owning a franchise. 

Western Electric Company, or Mercurial 
Fire Alarm Company, which conducts an 
automatic fire alarm business and has no 
franchise. 

N6ne of these leases seem to have been 
made within the last four or five years. 

Yours truly, 

Edward B. Ellicott, 

City Electrician. 

Which was referred to the Committee on 
Gas, Oil and Electric Light. 



ALSO, 

The following reto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
November lith, 1901. f 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, without 
my approval, an order passed by your Hon- 
orable Body at its last meeting granting per- 
mission to Wm. Piper to erect an electric 
sign in front of No. 2936 State street for the 
reason that another order granting the same 
privilege to the same person for the same 
premises was passed at the meeting of your 
Honorable Body of November 4th, 1901. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Jackson moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the order referred to in the veto 
message of His Honor, the Mayer, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Jackson moved that the order be

passed, the veto of His Honor, the Mayor, to 
the contrary notwithstanding. 

The motion was lost. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message : 

Mayor's Office, ) 
November 11th, 1901. S 

To the HomraUe, the City Council'. 

Gentlemen— I herewith return, without 
my approval, an ordinance passed by yeur 
Honorable Body at its last meeting changing 
the name of 48th court to Lloyd avenue, for 
the reason set forth in the aecompanying 
communication from the Superintendent of 
the City Map Department. 
Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 



Department of Public Works, \ 
Bureau of Maps, > 
Chicago, November 11th, 1901. ) 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mai/m^: 

Dear Sir— On page 1199, Council Pro- 
ceedings of November 4th, 1901, there ap- 
pears an ordinance changing the name of a 
portien of 48th court, located and running 
north and south, between Fulton street and 
Randolph street, to the name of Lloyd ave- 
nue. This ordinance should be vetoed for 
the following reas®ns : 

That part to be renamed is only a part of a 
street that runs continuously both north and 
south of said part, and is only broken at in- 
tervals. 

On January i4th, 1895, an ordinance was 
passed systematizing names of streets 
throughout the city. The ordinance of No- 
vember 4th, 1*901, will be contrary to the in- 
tent of ordinance of January 14th, 1895. 
Furthermore it is ea ier to locate 48th court 
as being the first street west of 48th avenue, 
than to locate Lloyd avenue, not having a 
guide by which to locate it. If this ordi- 
nance is not vetoed it will give two names t© 
the same street. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles J. Buhmann, 
Supt. Map Department. 



Aid. Race moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the ordinance referred to in the 
veto message of his Honor the Mayor was 
passed. 

The metion prevailed. 

Aid. Race moved that the ordinance be 
referred to the Committee on Street Nomen- 
clature. 

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message; 

Mayor's Office, / 
November 11th 1901. f 

To the Honwable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— I herewith return,without my 
approval, an ordinance passed by your Honor- 
able Body at its last meeting granting per- 
mission to the West Chicago Street Railroad 
C®mpany to construct, operate, etc., a street 
railway on Kedzie avenue from Twelfth 
stre t to Ogden avenue, for the following 
reasons : 

By Section 5 it is provided the company 
"in all things pertaining to the line of rail- 
way herein authorized shall be subject to all 
general ordinances of the City of Chicago," 
etc. This provision should not be limited to 
things "pertaining to the line of railway," as 
a too narrow construction might be given to 
this condition ; it should be extended to every- 
thing connected with the operation and 
management of the line, as well as to its re- 
lations to other street railroad c®mpanies and 
to other lines owned by the same company. 

Section 8 provides for the paving by the 
company of sixteen (16 » feet in the center 
of the street and for the maintenance of the 
same in good condition and repair. It has 
been held in other States that the phrase 
"maintaining the sixteen feei in good condi- 
tion and repair" does not give a munici- 
pality the right to force the company to 
keep that part of the street clean. There is 
also serious question whether Sections 1715, 
1T16 and 1717 of the Revised Code are not in- 
valid. These relate to steeet sprinkling and 
the removal of street accumulations by street 
railroad companies. The case is now before 
the Supreme Court. If invalid, the pro- 
visions of Section 5 of this ordinance would 
not make them operative over this line. 
Hence they should be explicitly stated as 



November 11, 



1258 



fl901 



conditions in the ordinance, in which event 
under the decision in the Suburban Railway 
case they would become valid conditions of 
the grant. 

The ordinance makes provision neither for 
the payment of license fees for the cars used 
by the company on the line authorized, for 
the carryinjr of city police and tiremen in 
uniform free of charge, for the proper heat- 
ing of the cars, nor for questions of rate of 
fare and of transfers. 

The ordinance has no clause to indemnify 
the city from damages resulting from the 
grant of the privilege : furthermore, the ordi- 
nance does not stipulate that the company 
shall pay to the owners of abutting property 
all damages they may sustain by reason of 
the location or construction of the road. 

There is no pi-ovision to guard against 
electrolysis, nor as to the mode by which the 
electric power shall be used, that is, whether 
by trolley or by an underground system. 
There should certainly be more specific pro- 
vision in the ordinance than the mere state- 
ment in Section 4 that the cars "shall be 
propelled by electric power.'' 

This ordinance also provides that the 
style of rail to be used shall be the grooved 
rail. 1 am in receipt of a petition from 
a number of property owners stating that 
owing to the fact that Kedzie avenue is 
paved with a cedar block pavement, laid 
some ten years ago, while the various cross 
streets are unpaved, the West Chicago Street 
Railway Company refuses to accept the ordi- 
nance while it contains the present grooved 
rail provision. The street railway company 
claim it would be practically impossible to 
use this type of rail in an outlying section of 
the city because of the dirt which would be 
''tracked'' upon its right of way by teams 
using the cross streets. 

Owing to the manner in which this ordi- 
nance is drawn and its failure properly to 
safeguard the rights of the city, I would sug- 
gest a reconsideration of the vote by which it 
was passed and its reference to the Corpo- 
ration Counsel to draft a proper ordinance to 
be submitted at the next regular meeting of 
your Honorable Body. Had the time at the 
disposal of the Corporation Counsel been 
suflBcient I would have submitted a substi- 
tute ordinance to-night. The late date at 
which the Council Proceedings came from 



the hands of the printer has prevented this 
action. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Bennett moved to reeonsider the 
vote by which the ordinance referred to in the 
veto message of His Honor the Mayor was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Bennett moved that the ordinance be 
referred t® the Special Committee on Local 
Transportation. 

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message:

To the IPmorable^ tlie City Council: 

Gentlemen— I return herewith, without 
my approval, an order passed by your 
Honorable Body at its last meeting granting 
permission to Jacob DeJong to lay a one- 
inch pipe in 95th street, from State street to 
Perry avenue, and in Perry avenue, from 
95th street southward, etc., for the reason 
that it is contrary to the rules of the Depart- 
ment of Public Works to permit the laying of 
a pipe of this nature without water meter, I 
would suggest a reconsideration of the vote 
by which the order was passed and its re-pas- 
sage with the following amendment: Strike

The Corporation Counsel submitted the 
following report: 

Office of the Counsel to | 
THE Corporation, >• 
Chicago, November, 11, 1901. 1 

To the Bbtiorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— Complying with the terms 
of a resolution adopted by your Honorable 
Body at its meeting of November 4, 1901, re- 
garding the condemnation proceedings of 
the Chicago Union Transfer Railway Com- 
pany vs. City of Chicago and the Board of 
Education of the City of Chicago, General 
No. 219468, in the Circuit Court of Cook 
County (which resolution is reported at 
pages 1200 and 1201 of the current Council 
Proceedings), I beg leave to advise you as 
follows- 

Said proceedings were to condemn the 
west half (K) of the southwest quarter 
of Section twenty-two (22), Township thirty- 
eight (38) North, Range thirteen (18), East 
of the Third Principal Meridian, situated in 
Cook County, Illinois, and School Fund 
Property. 

The suit was instituted July 12, 1901 ; sum- 
mons issued returnable July 22, 1901; and 
the city served therewith July 12, 1901. Mr. 
Edgar B. Tolman in charge of the special 
assessment and condemnation proceedings in 
this department, was in charge of the case 
for the city. 

The material facts in the case as ascer- 
tained by Mr, Tolman were: 

That April 17, 1901, a report of the Commit- 
tee on Buildings and Grounds was presented 
to the Board of Education of the City of Chi- 
cago, recommending that the President and 
the Secretary of the Board be instructed to 
request the City Council to advertise for the 
sale of the eighty acre tract of School Fund 
Property above described, and that the City 
Council be advised that the Board of Educa- 
tion would not consider any proposition for 
the sale of said property in a sum less than 
one hundred thousand (1100,000.00; dollars. 

That April 22, 1901, (see Council Proceed- 
ings, p. 45) a communication from the Board 
of Education pursuant to the foregoing reso- 



November 11, j 



1260 



[1901 



lution was presented iiad referred to the Com- 
inittee on Schools. 

That May 13, 1901, (see Council Proceed- 
ingrs, p. 181) Aid. Herrmann presented and 
the City Council passed an ordinance provid- 
inir for the sale of the aforesaid real estate; 
said ordinance in express terms providing 
that "no bids shall be considered for less than 
one hundred thousand ($100,000.00) dollars." 

Some time prior to the foregoing proceed- 
ings negotiations were entered into between 
the Chicago Union Transfer Railway Company 
and the Committee on Buildings and Grounds 
of the Board of Education, looking to the 
acquisition by said company of the aforesaid 
property for railway purposes. The Com- 
mittee had secured the services of expert real 
estate men to place a yaluation upon the said 
property, and upon such report, together 
with other information in the possession of 
said Committee, a value of one hundred 
thousand ($100,000.00) dollars was fixed 
thereon. 

Subsequently the railway company insti- 
tuted the condemnation proceedings to con- 
demn about thirty-eisrht acres of the afore- 
said tract, claiming at the time that inasmuch 
as the Council had adjourned for the summer 
the company could not otherwise get the 
immediate possession of the tract, which it 
was necessary to haye for the contemplated 
use thereof. 

The Committee on Buildings and Grounds 
would not consent to the condemnation of 
®nly a portion of said tract, for the reason, it 
was stated, that the remaining portion would 
be cut by the railroad tracks into such odd 
shapes and sizes as to be of no substantial 
value to the Board of Education ; and at a 
meeting of said Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds and representatives of said railway 
company it was agreed that said railway com- 
pany should amend its petition to include the 
entire tract above referred to. 

It was also stated by the attorney 
tor the Board of Education that it was 
satisfied that the sum of one hundred 
thousand (S100,OuO.OO) dollars was a fair 
price for the aforesaid property and was con- 
tent to accept that sum therefor. 

The Board of Education and your Honor- 
able Body itself each put the upset price o this 
property at the sum ©f one hundred thousand 
(?100,000.00) dollars. This department upon 



its part took the further precaution to con" 
suit with the Comptroller, who assigned the 
City Real Estate Expert, Mr. Harrington, to 
make a valuation of said property, and he 
and Mr. F. B. Baird, another expert em- 
ploped by the city, also placed the value 
thereof at said sum of one hundred thousand 
($100,000.00) dollars. 

Condemnation proceedings by law are of a 
summary nature and the statute provides 
that they may be set down for hearing per- 
emptorily in advance of other cases; and 
this case by order of Judge Tuthill was so 
set for hearing July 22, 1901, and tried ac- 
cording to law. It can hardly be said that 
the Board of Education "accepted" condem- 
nation proceedings, because neither the 
Board nor the city itself for that matter 
could have prevented them. I beg to say 
also that the result of the condemnation 
judgment does not constitute an absolute 
sale of the land. It does of course affect the 
price which third parties would bid; but it 
does not compel the city to execute a deed to 
ihe Chicago Union Transfer Railway Com- 
pany or to sell the fee in the land for what- 
ever it may be worth, affected as it is by the 
rights acquired by the railway company. 

Respectfully submitted,

Gentlemen — In accordance with resolu- 
lutions passed November 4th, 1901, requiring 
a report stating what company leases its 
ducts or conduits to the Printing Telegraph 
News Company or the Illinois Telegraph 
News Company, I beg to report that the Chi- 
cago Sectional Underground Conduit Com- 
pany rents all the space used by the Printing 
Telegraph News Company, which is now 
known as the "National Telegraph News 
Company." I have been unable to find any 
company known as the "Illinois Telegraph 
News Company." 

Yours respectfully, 

Edward B. Ellicott, 

City Electrician. 

Which was placed on file. 



November 11, J 

The Commissioner of Public Works sub- 
mitted the following communication : 

Department of Public Works, ) 
November 11, 1901. \ 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City 
Council 

Gentlemen— On December 0, 1900, a con- 
tract was executed between John P. Agnew 
and the City of Chicago for the construction 
of the uncompleted portion of the tunnel sec- 
tion of Section "C," intercepting sewer in 
39th street; same to be completed on or 
before the first day of March, A. D. 1902. On 
the 17th day of July, 1901, there was also 
executed a contract between said John P. 
Agnew and the City of Chicago for the con- 
struction of Section "L," being 470 feet more 
or less of twenty-foot*conduit in 39th street 
produced from the east line of Lake avenue 
to a point near the shore line ©f Lake 
Michigan ; same to be completed on or before 
the 15th day ©f July, 1902. 

In reference to the above mentioned con- 
tracts 1 wish to state that the progress on 
neither of said contracts has been satisfactory 
and that at the present time, in my opinion, 
the work on Sections "C" and '^L" cannot 
be completed within the time specified in said 
contracts. Numerous notices have been 
served on said contractor, both on Sections 
"C" and "L," to show better progress in the 
prosecution of his work, which notices have 
produced no good result. Therefore I would 
respectfully request that this communication 
be referred to the Committee on Finance 
with request that this matter be taken up at 
its next meeting. 

In this connection I would call attention t© 
the fact that Sections "G" and ''H" are 
progressing at a rate which unless 
Sections "C" and "L" are completed will 
put the city in a position where the section 
of the intercepting sewer, from 73d to 39th 
streets, costing between $800,000 and 1900,- 
000, would lie idle and be absolutely useless, 
and the pollution of Lake Michigan will be 
continued through another year. Therefore, 
under the circumstances, I believe that said 
contracts should be forfeited or such action 
taken as would compel the contractor to 
finish the work within the time specified in 
said centracts. 

Respectfully submitted, 

F. W. Blocki, 
Commisdoner of Public Works. 



Which was referred to the Committee on 
Finance.

The following communication: 

Board of Local Improvements, { 
Chicago, November 7th, 1901. \ 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison, IfaTjor, and Mem- 
bers of the City Council: 

Gentlemen— The Board of Local Im- 
provements has passed a resolution and is 
now preparing an ordinonee for the con- 
struction of a sewer system to drain the ter- 
ritory south of 73rd street and north of 87th 
street, known as the 73rd street and Stony 
Island avenue system. 

This contemplated improvement has been 
under consideration for a number of years, 
and for some time the Comptroller has held 
an option for the purchase of certain prop- 
erty owned by Dr. Oughton ; this property to 
be used as a site for the necessary pumping 
station in connection with this sewer. The 
option held is to purchase the property for 
16,500. 

In order to allow the Engineer to proceed 
with his plans, it is necessary for him to 
know whether or not this site will be used, as 
the plans and specifications for the station 
will have to be specified in the ordinance and 
must, to a certain extent, be adapted to the 
proposed site. 

In the annual appropriation bill to be con- 
sidered after January 1st. the Board of Lo- 
cal Improvements has asked that this sum of 
$6,500 be included in the appropriation bill; 
but in order not to delay the work of perfect- 
ing the plans and preparing the ordinance, I 
have taken the matter up with the Comp- 
troller, and he writes me as follows: 

"If you will get the Finance Committee to 
sanction the purcha e of this property, the 
money need not be paid until such time as 
the appropriation bill is passed. By doingf 
this you will hasten Mr. Hill's work and that 
of the Stony Island Avenue Pumping Sta- 
tion." 

May we ask that the proper Committee 
give this matter their immediate attention. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Board of Local Improvements, 
By John A. May, 

Secretary.

Finance,

130,000,000, through the Drainage Trustees, 
has been made toward the betterment of 
Chicago's sewerage system and for the pur- 
pose of providing pure drinking water to all 
parts of the city; and 

Whereas, As that sum is a vast amount of 
money to expend, it is time the citizens were 
getting returns on their investments, and 
instead of the daily water bulletins of 



"usable," "good" and "suspicious," and the 
continued sounding in the daily papers of the 
hackneyed, worn-out expression; "Boil the 
water," some radical change should be taken 
to remedy matters ; and 

Whereas, The drainage system is at the 
best but an experiment in so far as securing 
for Chicago pure drinking water; and 

Whereas, The prospects are that it will 
be many more years before the drainage sys- 
tem will be completed, and Chicago will 
continue to be deprived of pure drinking 
water, necessary to the health and comfort of 
its citizens; therefore, be it 

Besolv^d, That the Commissioner of Public 
Works be and is hereby directed to submit to 
the City Council, as early as practicable, an 
estimate of the probable cost of extending all 
the main water tunnels from their present 
terminus to a distance of not less than seven 
miles from the shore into Lake Michigan, to 
the end that the health of the citizens of 
Chicago shall no longer be imperiled, but 
instead of disease-breeding water the citizens 
may secure fer drinking and other purposes 
the purest and best water in the world.

establishments, in such manner as shall be 
approved by the Commissioner of Public 
Works; provided, that in all such cases such 
tracks shall leave a clear head room for the 
public way of not less than 12.0 feet; but 
in case it shall be necessary in order to ob- 
tain such head room to depress any such 
street, alley or public way, it may be so 
depressed upon condition that said railway 
or railroad companies constructing such 
branch, spur or side tracks shall do all the 
excavating necessary to make such depres-

of said embankment will be fixed and 
determined by the natural angle of repose 
of the materials of which said embankment 
may be constructed, but whenever it may 
become necessary for the purpose oE keep- 
ing said embankment entirely wiJhin the 
lines of the right of way of said company, 
or companies, such portions of said em- 
bankment at all such points shall be kept

shall be confined between, retaining walls 
of stone, concrete or brick masonry; pro- 
vided, however, that whenever said retain- 
ing walls are of insufficient height to prop- 
erly protect said right of way and to pre- 
vent trespassing thereon, then said retain- 
ing walls, as aforesaid, shall be sui mount- 
ed with a suitable fence or railing, but 
whenever said retaining walls are not used 
at all, the right of way of said company,

main fljor or ordinary track stringer?, but 
should the latter method be adopted, some 
suitable device shall be provided to pre- 
vent storm water, dirt, oil and other sub- 
stances from drooping from such elevated 
structure upon the subways beneath. The 
»said bridges shall be supported upon 
abutments of concrete, stone or brick 
masonry, or on rows of iron or steel col- 
umns braced together laterally and erected

Seventy-ninth street on the Illinois Cen- 
tral Kailroad, and between Seventy- sixth 
street and Seventy-ninth street on the New 
York, Chicago and St. Louis Railway, and 
also between Seventy- third street and 
Stoney Island avenue on the Lake Shore

Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Rail- 
way and its lessee the Pennsylvania Com- 
pany, but it is hereby agreed that if the 
City of Chicago shall at any time here- 
after open and extend any street or streets, 
avenue or alleys, by means of subways 
only across the right of way and lands and 
yards of said companies, between the 
points mentioned above, and in such case 
no claim for compensation on account of 
land taken for right of way of such street 
or streets, avenue or alleys, will be made 
by said railway companies, and such 
waiver of compensation shall attach to and 
run with such land in the hands of any 
grantee or grantees of such railway com- 
pany or companies, but the sole cost and 
expense of the construction of such 
subways, and of such bridges as may 
be necessary to carry all of the tracks 
of said companies' lands and right 
of way and yards and over said 
highways, should be borne and paid 
by the City of Chicago without expense to 
said railway companies mentioned in this 
ordiaance; and in no case shall any such 
subway or subways, bridge or bridges, so

construction shall be done by the railway 
company interested, and the amount to be 
paid by the city for such work and con- 
struction shall not exceed the actual and

reasonable cost thereof. Said bridges, re- 
spectively, shall support all the tracks of 
said company then txisting and in use 
across ihe line of such proposed street or 
streets at the time of the construction of 
such subway across such right of way or 
yards of said railway companies. But 
said railway company or companies shall 
not be r« quired to do any work towards 
the construction of any such subways until 
the cost thereof, as may be estimated by 
the City Engineer and Chief Engineer of 
said railway company or companies, first 
shall have been paid over to said com- 
pany or companies or deposited in some 
responsible bank for its or their benefit and 
to be paid over to it or them at once upon

of elevation on or before the thirty-first 
day of December, 1907, unless prevented 
by strikes or riots or restrained by in- 
junction or other order or process of a 
court of competent jurisdiction. The time 
during which said railway companies 
shall be prevented by strike or strikes, 
riot or riots, or legal proceedings as afore- 
said, shall be added to the time hereby 
limited for the completion of said work; 
provided said railway company, or com- 
panies, give notice to the Corporation 
Counsel of the City of Chicago of the 
institution of said legal proceedings. 
The City of Chicago shall thereupon have 
the right to intervene in any suit or pro- 
ceedings brought by any person or per- 
sons seeking to enjoin or restrain or in 
any manner interfere with the prosecution 
of said work, and move for a dissolu- 
tion of such injunction and restraining 



order, and for any other proper order in 
such suit. 

And it is further distinctly understood 
and agreed that if said railway companies, 
or either of them, shall be delayed in the 
prosecution of the said work required to be 
done under the provisions of this ordi- 
nance, by the reason of the obstruction of 
pipes, conduits, wires or other property of 
private corporations or individuals, as 
mentioned in Section 5 of this ordinance, 
or by reason of any delay on the part of 
the City of Chicago or any of its officers in 
performing the duties imposed upon the 
city and its officers by this ordinance in 
respect to the work herein required to be 
done by said railway companies, respec- 
tively, then and in that case the time which 
said railway companies, or either of them, 
shall be so delayed shall be added to the

quired by the terms of this ordinance to 
complete said work.

companies required by this ordinance to 
elevate its tracks shall do it s portion of the 
work in accordance with the terms hereof 
in apt and proper time so as not to inter- 
fere with the proper and orderly prosecu- 
tion of such work as a whole. Should 
any company fail or neglect so to prosecute 
its work, the Commissioner of Public 
Works of the City of Chicago shall have, 
and is hereby given, the right, power and 
authority to give ten (10) days' notice in 
writing to such delinquent company to 
prosecute its work. If such company shall 
fail or neglect to comply with said notice, 
the Commissioner of Public Works may 
take charge of and cause such work to be 
done, and the expense thereof shall there- 
upon be paid by such delinquent company.

half inches internal diameter, thoroughly 
cleaned and drenched with water, shall 
then be incorporated with the mortar; each 
batch of concrete shall be thoroughly 
mixed by turning with hoes and shovels at 
least three times. It shall then be spread 
at once and thoroughly compacted by 
ramming, until free mortar appeirs on the

above described, and, while in a hot and 
plastic condition, shall be rolled until it 
has a uniform thickness of one and one- 
half inches (IX-inch.) The upper surface 
shall be exactly parallel with and two 
inches (2-inch.) below the finished surface 
of the pavement. 

Upon this "binder" course s'aall be laid a

that obtained from Pitch Lake in the 
Island of Trinidad. The material for 
pavement when mixed as above shall be 
spieidat a temperature of two hundred 
and fiEty (250) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall 
be carefully spread by means of hot iron 
rakes in such manner as to give uniform 
and regular grade to such a depth, that

Ti) the I/oNontbIc, the CU'ij Council: 

Gentlemen— 1 herewith return, without 
my ;ipi)roval, an order passed by your Hon- 
orable Body at its last meeting ordering' the 
Commissioner of Public Worl<s to order the 
Chicago West Division Railway Company to 
l)ave its ri^lit of way in West Harrison street, 
from Centre avenue to Paulina street with 
vitrified briclc, for the reason that the past 
experience of the city has taught that vitri- 
fied brick is not a suitable pavement for 
heavy traffic streets or for the right of way 
of street cars. The turning of heavily laden 
teams in and out of the tracks so grinds the 
brick that in a comparatively short time the 
pavement becomes useless. From the ex- 
perience of this city the only satisfactory 
paving for a street car right of way is dressed 
granite block. I would therefore suggest a 
reconsideration of the vote by which this 
order was passed and its re-passage with the 
following amendment: Amend said order by 
striking out the v/ords "with vitrified brick" 
in lines six and seven of said order and sub- 
stitute in their stead "with dressed granite 
block."

Company to pave its right of way 16 feet in

Centre avenue and Paulina street, with

November Ifeth, 1901. j 

To the Honorable the Mayor and City C(mncil^ 

Gentlemen. — I would respectfully request 
the passage of the enclosed ordinance, in 
order to allow payment by this department 
for furnaces put in service during the cur- 
rent vear, which is prevented by Section 2 of 
the ordinance passed December 17, 1900, re- 
stricting the payment to last year's appropri- 
ation. 

As it would have been absolutely impossi- 
ble to have installed these furnaces between 
the date of the passage of the ordinance and 
the end of the fiscal year, and as there is a 
suflacient amount remaining in the fund for 
this year to pay for the same, in accordance 
with the intention of both the department 
and the Hawley Down Draft Furnace Com- 
pany, the passage of this amendi^ig ordi- 
nance will, in my judgment, clear the situa-

Youehers in proper form. 

Yours truly, 

Edward B. Eli.icott, 

City Electrician.

The Commissioner of Public Works, sub- 
mitted the following communication: 

Department of Public Works. I 
Chicago, November 18, 1901. ) 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City Coun- 
cil: 

Gentlemen— Referring to your order of 
October 21, 1901, that the Commissioner of 
Public Works advertise for bids for the com- 
pletion of the work required by the contract 
of Farley & Green, dated May 2, 1898, for the 
construction of Section "D," open cut and 
tunnel Lawrence avenue of main conduits 
for intercepting sewers, I beg to state: 

Bids were advertised for in accordance with 
said said order, and proposals received as 
follows : 

per foot. 

Griffiths & McDermott $81 25 

Joseph Hanreddy 68 00 

Fitz-Simons & Council 75 00 

Nash Brothers ' 71 90 

Which bids are transmitted herewith in 
compliance with said order. 

In this conne tion I beg to call your atten- 
tion to the fact that the estimates made

[1901 



the Department of Public Works on this work 
were sixty-six (^00) dollars per foot actual 
cost, not taking into consideration any uufor- 
seen conditions or delays that might be 
caused in the completion of the work. The 
estimate of the department within which the 
work could be done was seventy ($70) dollars 
per foot, taking everything into considera- 
tion. As the lowest bid of sixty-eight ($68) 
dollars per foot is between these figures, and 
as said work if done by day laber would pro- 
gress rapidly and all chances of extras on ac- 
count of any unforseen delays or other condi- 
tions would be eliminated, I would respect- 
fully sutrgest to your Honorable Body that 
before an award is recommended that the pol- 
icy of doing said work by day labor be thor- 
oughly investigated. 

Respectfully submitted, 

F. W. Blocki, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

The following communication (together 
with ordinance) : 

Board of Local Improvements, j 
Chicago, November 15th, 1901. \ 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison^ Mayor., and Mem- 
bers of the City Council: 

Gentlemen— 1 am directed by the Board 
of Local Improvements to return herewith to 
your Honorable Body department ordinance 
for the improvement of West 47th street, 
from State street to Halsted street, together 



with a statement from the Board concerning 
the same. 

This is an ordinance preparatory to the 
levying of a supplemental assessment, and 
was submitted to your Honorable Body 
Novem])er 11th, and on motion referred back 
to the Board. 

The work upon this improvement has been 
completed, pursuant to an ordinance passed 
September 5, 1900. The estimate as origin- 
ally made was not sufficient to pay for the 
improvement, and the contract was regularly 
awarded for the price bid per unit, with an 
order that a supplemental assessment for the 
deficiency be levied. 

Formerly, where upon receipt of bids it 
was found that the assessment was not suffic- 
ient to complete the improvement, the Board 
recommended the abandoning of the pro- 
ceeding and the making of a new assessment 
increasing the estimated cost sufficient to 
pay for the work. 

The Supreme Court, however, decided that 
these former judgments could not be vacated 
and a new proceeding started, but that a 
supplemental assessment must be made, and 
this proceeding is in accordance with the 
opinion of the Supreme Co^rt. 

The contractor is entitled to $6,112.15, 
which is the amount of this supplemental 
ordinance, in addition to the amount al- 
ready confirmed ; and if this amount is not 
collected from the property-owners through 
a supplemental assessment, and if the City 
Council refuse or neglect to pass the ordi- 
nance, it seems to be the opinion of ssme of 
the best attorneys in the city that in such an 
event the city would be personally liable. 

We, therefore, submit the ordinance to- 
gether with our recommendation, thereto 
attached, for your further consideration. 

Yours very truly. 

Board of Local Improvements, 

John A. Mat, 

Secretary. 

Which were referred to the Committee on 
Special Assessments.

percentage, when the State Board concludes

state outside of Chicago will receive the bal- 
ance of 27% of this property ; therefore, be it 

Eesolved, That the State Board of Equali^ 
zation is hereby respectfully requested to re- 
turn the property mentioned of the St.

Aid. Novak presented the following reso- 
lution : 

Whereas, The City Council has from time 
to time passed track elevation ordinances, 
commonly called compromised ordinances, 
wherein it was necessary to consult with the 
respective railroad companies as to whether 
or not they would accept or reject an ordi- 
nance when passed; ani, 

Whereas, The different railroad compa- 
nies would from time to time suggest and in- 
dicate what kind of an ordinance would be 
acceptable and what kind of an ordinance 
would be rejected by them; and, 

Whereas, When making such compro- 
mises, the City of Chicago had been ©bilged 
to close a great number of streets that had 
been used by the public for years, and such 
streets that were closed, were closed solely 
at the request of the railroad companies in 
order that the expense of a subway may be 
saved to the railroad companies; and. 

Whereas, The people of the City of Chi- 
cago and especially the property owners re- 
siding on such streets that cross the rail- 
road right of way are greatly affected, and 
their property decreases in value by reason 
of the closing of such streets; and, 

Whereas, The Supreme Court of the 
State of Illinois at its October term, A. D. 
1901, in the case of City of Chicago vs. John 
Jackson had passed on the question of police 
power of municipalities as applied to track 
elevation; and, 

Whereas, It is the desire of this Council 
to be informed correctly on the subject 
whether or not the City Council has the right 
to pass a mandatory ordinance, compelling 
such railroad companies to elevate their rail- 
road tracks, irrespective of any compromises 
between the City of Chicago and the railroad 
companies ; therefore be it 

Resolved, That the Corporation Counsel be 
and he is hereby directed to submit to this 
Council without delay an opinion in writing 
on the matter set forth in this resolution. 

Which was, on motion, duly adopted.

REPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted his re- 
port of releases from the House of Correc- 



tion for the week ending November 23, 
1901, which was 

Placed on file. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, | 
November 25, 1901. ) 

To the Honorable, the City Council; 

Gentlemen— I herewith return, without 
my approval, an ordinance passed by your 
Honorable Body at its last meeting author- 
izing the Board of West Chicago Park Com- 
missioners to take over for a boulevard that 
portion of Washington boulevard between 
South Fifty-second avenue and South Sixtieth 
avenue, for the reason that Section 4 thereof 
provides that the consent to the transfer of 
the boulevard is granted @nly upon "the ex- 
press condition that no saloons or dramshops 
or business houses of any kind or nature 
shall be located upon the lots or lands 
abutting on said portion of Washington 
boulevard." 

The location of saloons with reference to 
boulevards is regulated by a general ordi- 
nance of the city. I am advised that the 
provision relating to the exclusion of 
all business houses is invalid, inasmuch as 
the City Council has no power to direct the 
location of all classes of business as is here 
attempted. Moreover, the consent of the 
property owners which was filed with the 
ordinance is given upon the express condi- 
tion that no business houses of any kind or 
nature shall be located upon property abut- 
ting on the boulevard. As the condition 
attached to the consents is illegal and there- 
fore impossible to be put into effect, the con- 
sents themselves do not become operative. 
If the property owners gave their consent 
only on the ground that there should be no 
business houses on the boulevard and this 
provision is not capable of enforcement, 
they should now in fairness be given an op- 
portunity to say whether they still wish the 
boulevard project to be carried through. 

I therefore recommend that the vote by 
which the ordinance was passed be recon- 
sidered and that the ordinance be referred to 
the Committee on Streets and Alleys, W. D. 
Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor.

Aid. Hunter moved to reconsider the vote

message of His Honor, the Mayor, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Hunter moved that the order be re- 
ferred to the Committee on Streets and Al- 
leys, West Division. 

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
November 25th, 19U1. S 

To the Honorable, the City Council : 

Gentlemen— I return herewith, without 
my approval, the following orders passed by 
your Honorable Body at its last meeting, 
directing the Commissioner of Public Works 
to issue permits for electric signs to 

C. F. Appel, 296 Orleans street. 
A. G. McDaniel, % North State street. 
Ernest Liebke, 236 Wells street. 
C. Anderson, 355 North Clark street. 
H. Spitz, 1172-74 Milwaukee avenue. 
Henry Schroeder, 1138 Milwaukee ave- 
nue. 

A. Munsil & Co., 1373 West Madison 
street. 

Edward Morien, 1305 Madison street. 

Sugg & Fox, 3304 Cottage Grove avenue. 

John R. Dare Company, 286 State street. 

English Tailoring Company, Dearborn 
and Madison streets. 

JohnH. Bradley, 177 East Madison street. 

Jenner Medical College, 198 East Wash- 
ington street. 

For the reason tbat said orders provide 
that the permits shall be issued by the Com- 
missioner of Public Works instead of by the 
City Electrician. In order that the Elec- 
trical Department may properly supervise 
the work connected with the erection of 
electric signs it is necessary that the permits 
should be issued from that department. 

I would therefore recommend a reconsid- 
eration of the vote by which these various 



orders were passed and their repassage with 
the following amendment: 

Strike out the words "Commissioner of 
Public Works" in lines one and two of said 
orders and insert in their stead the words 

City Electrician." 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison. 

Mayor.

The following communication and copy of 
opinion : 

Mayor's Office, / 
November 25, 1901. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Council, of the City 
of Chicago : 

Gentlemen — I hand you herewith copy of 
an opinion given to me by the Corporation 
Counsel, dated November 15, 1901, to the 
effect that interest upon or compensation for 
the use of public funds of the City of Chicago 
in the hands of the County 'Treasurer and 
County Collector belongs to the city and not 
to the Treasurer; tha,t Chap. 53, Sec. 31, Re- 
vised Statutes of this State makes it the duty 
of such County Treasurer "on the first day 
of June and the first day of December in each 
year to make to the Chairman of. the Board 
of Commissioners a report in writing under 
oath of all the fees and emoluments of his 
office, of every name and description whatso- 
ever," for the half year ending at the time of 
such report. It is the Board's duty to audit 
such accounts as soon as may be and correct 
and adjust the same in accordance with the 
facts, and to pay over to the City of Chicago 
its just proportion of any balance due. 

Inasmuch as the next report, audit and ac- 
count are required to be made early in De- 
cember, I respectfully suggest that your 
Honorable Body appoint the Finance Com- 
mittee to confer with the County Board and 
represent the city's interests in matters relat- 
ing to such audit and account, to the end that 



November 35,]

the city's '-just proportion" may be duly 
acknowledged and paid over to it. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H, Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Office of tee Counsel to i 
THE Corporation, >• 
Chicago, November 15, 1901. ) 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison., 3Iayor of the City 
of Chicago : 

Dear Sir— In reply to your request asking- 
me to inform you v^ho is the legal owner of 
"the interest on the funds in the hands of the 
County Collector and County Treasurer," I 
assume that your inquiry refers particularly 
to the interest, if any, which may have ac- 
crued to funds in his hands belonging to the 
City ©f Chicago. 

The County Treasurer is the custodian ©f 
the public moneys of the county and the law 
requires him, by virtue of his oflSee, to under" 
take and perform the duties of County Col- 
lector. Although he is compelled to give a 
separate bond as such collector, there are not 
two separate offices. There is but one office 
and one salary, but with two different classes 
of duties, namely: those of Treasurer and 
those of Collector. 

Kilgore vs. People, 76 Ills., o48.. 

It is the duty of the County Treasurer to 
treasure the county's moneys and it is the 
duty of the City Treasurer to treasure the 
city's moneys; and the County Collector's 
duty among other things is to collect the 
city's taxes and without demand 

"Pay over to such (City) Treasurer as often 
as once in two weeks, from the time he shall 
commence the collection thereof, all such 
taxes as he shall then have collected, till the 
whole tax shall have been paid over;" 

Kurd's Statutes (1899), Chap. 24, Art. 8, 
Sec. 2. 

And "the County .Collector shall report 
and pay over the amount of tax and special 
assessments due to * * * * cities 
collected by him on delinquent property at 
least once in every ten days, when demanded 
by the proper authorities and persons." 

Kurd's feitatutes (1899), Chap. 120, Sec. 244. 

In brief, it is the duty of the County Col- 



lector to collect and promptly pay over the 
city's taxes to the City Treasurer. 

If instead of performing that duty accord- 
ing to law, he withholds them and deposits 
them in some bank or banks in his name, 
and thus or otherwise, while such funds are 
in his control, interest accrues thereto, the 
question is whether such interest belongs to 
him or to the city, and if to the city, how it 
may be recovered. 

Section 81 of the Criminal Code provides 
as follows: 

"If any state, county, township, ^ * ^' 
officer shall use by way of investment or 
loan, for his own use, except as authorized 
by law, with or without interest, any portion 
of the money, bonds, mortgages, * * or 
securities entrusted to him for safe-keeping, 
disbursement, transfer, or other purpose, if 
the sum or value of the property does not 
exceed the sum of one hundred ($100.00) 
dollars, he shall be fined not exceeding two 
hundred (1200.00) dollars, or confined in the 
county jail not exceeding three (3) months, 
©r both ; or if the sum or value of the prop- 
erty so used or loaned exceeds one hundred 
($100.00) dollars, he shall be fined in double 
the amount so used or loaned, or confined in 
the county jail not exceeding one (1) year, ©r 
both." 

The well-known McFetridge case, wherein 
the State Treasurer of Wisconsin with his 
bondsmen was held liable for interest upon 
the public funds, well classifies the adjudi- 
cations upon this subject as follows : 

1. Cases holding that the officer owns the 
public funds himself while in his hands, and 
therefore of course cannot be compelled to 
account for interest. 

2. Cases holding that although if he be 
not the owner yet if he use them unlawfully 
the State on that account cannot claim the 
advantage of his act. 

3. Cases which hold that he is not the 
owner but that his liability to account for the 
public funds is absolute, like that of a com- 
mon carrier, and that for any profit or gain 
made by the officer out of the use of such 
funds he must account to tho owner thereof, 
whether such gains were made lawfully or 
unlawfully. 

4. Cases which hold that if the officer, not 
being such owner, makes gains out of the 
public funds by the lawful use thereof such 



November 25, J 



1384: 



(1901 



^ains attach to the funds»by way of accretion 
or iacrenient and become a part of it and be- 
U)nj to the owner of the fund; and if not 
accounted for an action at law may be main- 
tained on the oflBcial bond of the oflBcer and 
liis sureties to recover such gains. 

The State vs. McFetridge et al., 84 Wis., 
473. 

The case in' question cannot be within the 
first class, for the reason that the Supreme 
Court of this State holds that a custodian of 
public funds is never the owner of them, but 
always a "fiduciary" for the public. 

Chicago vs. Gage, 95 Ills., 593. 

Dreyer vs. People, 176 Ills., 590. 

The second class of cases now seems almost 
wholly discredited, and mainly upon the sim- 
ple maxim of law that "n® man shall profit by 
his own wrong." To say that a treasurer 
may profit lawfully by his own unlawful act 
means a paradox in law, that a man may le- 
gally do an illegal thing. 

From an examination of all the other cases 
that I have found I am of the opinion that, 
independent of legislative or constitutional 
provisions, the interest arising from deposits 
of public moneys is an increment to the fund 
and becomes a part of it, and that the fund so 
increased by interest belongs to the original 
owner, in this case, if interest or other com- 
pensation has arisen, the City of Chicago, 
and that the County Collector of Cook County 
and the sureties upon his bond are liable to 
account to the City of Chicago therefor. 

Lonsdale vs. Church, 8 Brown Ch., 40. 

Supervisors Richmond County vs. Wandel, 
6 Lans., 33. 

State vs. McFetridge, 84 Wis., 473. 

and many other cases quite too numerous to 
mention. 

As to the remedy, the law (Kurd's Stat- 
utes. 1899, Chap. 120, Sec. 262) provides that 
cities aggrieved may proceed directly against 
collectors upon their official bonds. 

I also beg te call your attention to the 
duties which the constitution and laws of 
this state seem to place upon the county 
oflBcials themselves in regard to the subject 
matter of your inquiry. 

Section 9 of Article 10 of the constitution 
provides that the Treasurer of Cook County 



shall receive as his only compensation a sal" 
ary to be fixed by law, which shall in no 
case be as much as the legal compensation of 
a judge of the Circuit Court of Cook 
County. It further provides that said com- 
pensation shall be paid only out of the fees 
of the office collected; and that "all fees, 
perquisites, and emoluments (above the 
amount of said salaries) shall be paid into 
the county treasury." 

This salary by Section 31, Chapter 53, 
Kurd's Revised Statutes (1899), actually 
has been fixed by law at the sum of four 
thousand ($4,000.00) dollars per annum. 
The same section provides that all the fees 
and emoluments received by the County 
Treasurer over and above the amount due 
him as compensation for services, stationery, 
and other necessary expenses, shall be ac- 
counted for and paid out upon order of the 
County Board, and that the county shall ac- 
count for and pay over to the City of Chi- 
cago its just proportion of the same. Four 
thousand .$4,000.00) dollars, then, is all the 
compensation the County Treasurer and 
Collector is entitled to. 

Tha Supreme Court of this state has given 
unmistakable expression of its construction 
of the constitution and this statute. 

In the Kughes case it held that sheriff 
could claim nothing beyond his compensation 
fixed by law, and said: 

"It appears Appellant (sheriff) received 
from a banking institution the sum of 
twenty-five hundred ($2,500 00) dollars (over 
and above his compensation fixed by law) as 
compensation for the deposits he made there- 
in of moneys which came to his hands as 
sheriff, and it was claimed by him that he 
was not accountable for this sum to the 
county. * * This being a perquisite or 
emolument acquired by official position 
should be accounted for to the county." 

Hughes vs. People, 82 Ills.. 78. 

Section 31, Chapter 53, Kurd's Revised 
Statutes (1S99), makes it the duty of the 
County Treasurer to make a report in writ- 
ing under oath, on the first day of June and 
the first day of December in each year, to 
the Chairman of the County Board, of "all 
the fees and emoluments of every name and 
description whatsoever." The law gives the 
County Board full control and supervision of 



November 25,] 



1385 



[1901 



the County Treasurer and the official dis- 
charge of his duties. 

I ain of the opinion that if any interest has 
accrued to or any compensation been paid 
for the use of funds iu the hands of the 
County Collector collected by him for the 
City of Chicagco, such interest or compensa- 
tion belong:s to the city; that under the de- 
cision in the Hughes case it is the dnty of the 
County Board upon its next settlement with 
the County Treasurer and Collector, required 
by law to be made in December, to ascertain 
how much, if any, interest or compen- 
sation for the use of public moneys has 
been paid to the County Treasurer; and 
if any, that the county should, according to 
the letter of the statute, '"account for and 
pay over to the City of Chicago its just pro- 
portion of the same." 

While it must and of course should be as- 
sumed that the County Board will do its full 
duty in the premises, not only to the county 
but to the city, I nevertheless beg to advise 
you that neither action nor inaction upon its 
part will preclude any right of the city to 
recover its own. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) Charles M. Walker. 

Corporation Counsel. 

Which was referred to the Committee on 
Finance. 

The Corporation Counsel submitted the 
following opinion: 

Office of the Counsel to ) 
THE Corporation, >• 
Chicago, November, 25, 1901. I 

To the Honorable., the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — At meetings of your Hon- 
orable Body held October 28 and November 
4, 1901, orders were passed directing the 
Corporation Counsel to mal?e examination 
and report as to the validity of the pe- 
titions accompanying ordinances purporting 
to authorize the laying and operating of 
electrical conductors along certain streets, 
to the Zenith Electric Company, Montgom- 
ery Ward & .Co., A. J. Sidder Company 
and Morrison Hotel and Restaurant Com- 
pany, respectively. 

I am informed by Alderman Ailing, upon 



whose motions these orders were passed, that 
the sole information desired is whether 
frontage consents given by lessees of prop- 
erty instead of by the actual owners in fee 
are sufficient. 

In reply I beg to advise you that an Act of 
the Legislature passed in 1897 provides: 

"That the city councils in cities . . . 
shall have no power to pass an ordinance grant- 
ing to any person or corporation the right or 
privilege . . . to lay in or on the ground or 
string on poles any wires on, over, ©r by which 
electricity for lighting purposes is to be used, 
conveyed, or distributed, in any street, alley, 
or public ground, in any such city . . . ex- 
cept upon the petition of the owner of the land 
representing more than one-half of the front- 
age of the street or alley, or so much thereof 
as is sought to be used for the purposes 
above mentioned." 

The Supreme Court of this State has fre- 
quently passed upon somewhat similar 
statutes, and in each case it has been held 
that where the word "owner" is used it 
means the person holding an estate in fee 
simple. 

Jarrot vs. Vaughn, 7 Ills. (2 Gil.), "134 
(138). 

Winnesheik Insurance Company vs. Schil- 
ler, 60 Ills., 465. 

Edwards vs. Hill, 11 Ills., 22. 

Merritt vs. City of Kewaunee, 175 Ills., 537. 

In my opinion, therefore, the petitions, in 
order to rraeet the requirements of the law, 
should be signed by the owners in fee and not 
by the owners of any less estates, such as 
those of lessees. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles M. Walker, 

Corporation Counsel. 

Aid. Ailing moved that the opinion, 
together with all the ordinances in question, 
be referred to the Committee on Gas, Oil and 
Electric Light. 

The motion prevailed. 

The Commissioner of Public Works sub- 
mitted the following communication:

Hon. F. W. Blocki, Commissioner of Public 
Wm-ks. 

Dear Sir — Referring to order introduced 
by Aid. Hunter in the council on November 
11th, page 1289, on investigation I find on 
page 4574 of Proceedings of the Board of 
Trustees of the Sanitary District of Chicago, 
dated February 24, 1898, the following: 

Section 4. The Sanitary District will pay 
the railway company for the enjoyment of 
the privileges conferred by this agreement 
as an annual rental the sum of three thou- 
sand (§;3, 000.00) for each and every year that 
it uses the premises for the purposes herein 
set forth, and the right to use the same shall 
be perpetual so long as it pays the said rental. 
This rental shall begin May 1, 1898, and shall 
be payable in semi-annual installments of 
fifteen i undred dollars each in advance, pay- 
able on the first days of May and November 
in each year. Should the first party fail to 
pay any installment of rent within thirty 
(30) days of the date herein fixed for the 
payment of the same, the second party may 
at its option and upon ten (10) days written 
notice and subsequent delinquency, declare a 
forfeiture of all rights of the first party 
under this agreement, and all the rights and 
privileges hereby granted or intended so to be 
to the first party shall cease and determine, 
and thereupon the second party may take 
possession of the land which may have been 
occupied and all structures and materials 
which may have been placed thereon by the 
first party and dispose of the same for its 
own interest and fill or otherwise exclude the 



[1901 

flow of water from said conduit according to 
its own interest and judgment."

discouragement in the municipal depart- 
ments to which it applies; and 

Whereas, It is reported on good authority 
that rules have been adopted by the Civil 
Service Commission, and are now enforced, 
which are in direct conflict with the spirit of 
genuine civil service, -if not actually in con- 
flict with the law itself; and 

Whereas, A striking illustration of the 
condition referred to presented in the 
case of Capt. Luke P. CoUeran, the disposi- 
tion of which by the Civil Service Commis- 
sion encourages malicious and envious con- 



spiracies within the different departments 
nullifies and ignores a record of eighteen 
years, unblemished by even a reprimand but, 
adorned with deeds of heroism, and stamps 
with the disgrace of discharge an ofiicial 
whose life has many times been risked in the 
service of the city ; and

diate interest in the administration of the 
civil service law inasmuch as this body votes 
the appropriation out of which the salaries 
of the Civil Service Commission are paid ; be it 

Resolved, That the Coiiimittee on Civil Ser- 
vice of this Council be and are hereby di-

REPORTS OF SPECIAL COMMITTEES. 

ANARCHY. 

The Special Committee on Anarchy, and 
the Memorializing Congress on subject of sup- 
pression of same, submitted a report as fol- 
lows: 

Aid, Beilf uss moved that the report be de- 
ferred and published. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the report: 

Chicago, November 4, 1901. 

To the Honorable Mayor and City Council of 
the City of Chicago : 

Your Special Committee appointed for the 
purpose of Memorializing Congress on the 
subject of anarchy, suggesting legislation 
tending to wipe out such evil, begs leave to 
submit the following report: 

To the Senate and House of Jiepresentatives, in 
Congress Assembled : 

In view of the national calamity which has 
removed from the head of our government its 
chief executive, and thereby caused uni- 
versal grief and general alarm at a 
time when our land was prosperous 
and our people at peace with all nations, 
we, the Mayor and City Council of 
the City of Chicago, as the corporate repre- 
sentatives of a cosmopolitan population, 
would give expression to the sentiment that 
pervades the public mind, both in heartfelt 
sorrow and also in righteous indignation over 
the wicked act that has caused such a 
calamity. 

1. We sympathize with the stricken widow 
of President McKinley, so ruthlessly deprived 
of a devoted husband; with those engaged in 
the discharge of official duties, so unneces- 
sai'ily disturbed in their harmonious co- 
operation with a wise and manly chief; with 



November 25, j 



1426 



[1901 



the seventy-six millions of American people 
■wb© t^rieve over tbe deplorable treatment of 
one of their fellow citizens whom they had 
promoted to the presidency, aud with all the 
symputhizinfc and civilized nations of the 
world we deprecate the loss of our respected 
fellow citizen whose virtues as a man, whose 
leadership as a faithful executive ofbcer and 
whose wisdom in the securing and main- 
tenance of our general prosperity merit our 
sincere commendation. 

2. Together with the unanimous voice of 
the press, the bar, the forum and the pulpit, 
we condemn and stamp as infamous the 
assassination of our beloved president. 

As citizens of a free republic, where law is 
of the people's making and where the ballot 
is accessible to all, we cannot but deplore 
the inconsistency that a young man, ignorant, 
and vainglorious, should have believed him- 
self called upon to right imaginary wrongs, 
and thus thwart the will of a majority of the 
intelligent American citizens by cowardly 
grasping the power to undo what a great 
nation had done through the palladium of its 
political liberty. 

3. With due regard to our sense of public 
responsibility, we should not pass over an 
occurrence so terrible as the assassination of 
a Chief Executive without serious reflection. 
The fact that the assassin calls himself an 
anarchist and has associated with persons 
designing evil asrainst our institutions, and 
thus been urged to the commission of his 
crime by anarchistic speakers, by inflam- 
matory literature and agitations against ex- 
isting of society, should suggest the necessity 
for legislation having for its purpose the 
effectual stamping out of such false doctrines, 
so inimical to our form of government. 

4. We request the Congress of the United 
States to enact laws that will cheek an- 
archistic agitation, by making it a criminal 
offense to proclaim throagh the press or from 
the platform those anarchistic principles, 
tending to create a spirit of unrest in 
the minds of those individuals susceptible of 
such destructive doctrines, fostering hatred 
towards those high in public places, resulting 
eventually in the commission of such heinous 
crimes as illustrated by the assassination of 
our respected President. An attempt to take 
the life of the President or Vice-President of 
tbe United States should be punishable by 
the penalty of death. We would, therefore. 



request Congress to take steps to accomplish 
such purpose, either by proposed amendment 
to the Constitution, making such an act 
treasonable, or by urging tbe several states 
to enact appropriate legislation providing for 
the infliction of the death penalty for such 
cases. 

5. There will always be disease, discontent 
and violence; there will always be cranks 
and madmen. We can not expect to legislate 
all evil out of existence, nor to stamp out 
entirely anarchy and ruffianism by curbing 
the fredom of public speech, or by censor- 
shipof the press. Slander the abuse of those 
in office may indeed be made punishable with 
suppression, but such suppression will be most 
effectually accomplished by the frown and 
condemnation of a public sentiment. Let all 
our people be educated t9 an intelligent citi- 
zenship, to habits of cleanliness and thrift. 
Let our schools utilize tbe forenoon of every 
national holiday with public exercises of a 
patriotic character. Let the pulpit, the 
lyceum and the press join in inculcating a 
love of country and an intelligent apprecia- 
tion of our system of government.

nue to North Leavitt street, Chicago* subject 
to the supervision of the proper officers of

and regulations of the Department of Public 
Works and ordinances of the city. 

The Corporation Counsel submitted the 
following opinien: 

Office of the Counsel to | 
THE Corporation, > 
December 9, 19U1< ) 

To the Honorable, the City Coioncil of the City 
of Chicaqo: 

Gentlemen — In compliance with an order 
passed by your Honorable Body at its regu- 
lar meeting, Nevember 18, 1901, and printed 
on page 1357 of the current Council Proceed- 
ings, directing me to submit an opinion to 
the City Council whether or not it has the 
right to pass mandatory ordinances compell- 
ing the railroad companies to elevate their 
railroad tracks within the city, irrespective 
of any compromises between the city and the 
companies, and in doing so to keep all the 
public street crossings open, I have to say: 

The Supreme Court of Illinois and the 
Supreme Court of the United States uni- 
formly have upheld and given eHect to the 
inherent police powers of the State to pro- 
vide for the safety of the public in so far as 
the safety of the lives and persons of the 
people were involved in the operation of rail- 
roaas. ''The requirement that compensation 
be made for private property taken for pub- 
lic use imposes no restriction upon the in- 
herent power of the State by reasonable 
regulatiDns to protect the lives and secure 
the safety p the people." (Chicago, Bur- 
lington and Quincy Railroad Company vs. 
City of Chicago, 166 U. S., 226, quoting N. 
Y. & N. E. Railroad Company vs. Bristol, 
151 U. S., 556 (567.) This court "declared 
it to be clearly established that the inhibi- 
tions of the Constitution of the United 
States upon the impairment of the obliga- 
tions of contracts for the deprivation of 
property without due process or of the equal 



protection of the laws by the Stale are not 
violated by the legitimate exercise of legisla* 
tive power in securing the public safety^ 
health, and morals." 

"Government owes to its citizens the duljj' 
of providing and preserving safe and con- 
venient highways. From this duty results 
the right ©f p,^blic control over public high- 
ways. Railroads are public highways, and 
in their relations as such to the public aye 
subject t@ legislative supervision, though the 
interests of their shareholders are private 
property. Every railroad company takes its 
right of way subject to the right of the public 
to extend the public highways and streets 
across such right of way. rail- 
roads so far as they are public highways ar6, 
like other highways, subject to legislative 
supervision, then railroad companies in their 
relations to highways and streets which in^ 
tersect their rights of way are subject to the 
control of the police power of the State— that 
power of which this court has said that 'it 
may be assumed that it is a power coexten- 
sive with self-protection, and is not inaptly 
termed the law of overruling' necessity.' ,* 
* ^ The Supreme Court of the United 
States have said: 'Whatever differences of 
opinion may exist as to the extent and boun-^ 
daries of the police power * * * there 
seems to be ao doubt that it does extend to 
the protection of the lives, health and prop- 
erty of the citizens.' (Fertilizing Company 
vs. Hyde Park, 97 U. S., 659.) It has been 
held by this court in a number of cases that 
raiiroad corporations may be required to 
fence their tracks, to put in cattle guards, to 
place upon their engines a bell, and to do 
other things for the protection of life and 
property, although their charters contained 
no such requirements. (G. & C. U. R. R^ 
Co. vs. Loomis, 13 Ills., 548; G. & C. U. R. 
R. Co. vs. Dill, 22 id., 264; O. & M. R. R. Co, 
vs. McClelland, 25 id., 140; P. & P. U. Ry. 
Co. vs. P. & F. Ry. Co., 105 id., 110.) * * * 
Uncompensated obedience to a regulation 
enacted for the public safety under the police 
power of the State is not a taking or damag- 
ing without just compensation of private 
property or of private property affected with 
a public interest." 

Chicago and Northwestern Railway Com 
pany/vs. City of Chicago, 140 111., 309. 

The latter case quotes approvingly the 
opinion in T. P. & W. R. W. Co. vs. Deacon, 
63 Ills., 91, in which the Supreme Court said; 



December 9,| . 

necessary in and about Uic placinj; of said 
scale shall be done under the supervision 
;ibd to the satisfaction of the (Commissioner 
of Public Works of the City of Chicapro. 

Section 2. That permission and authority 
hereby granted shall cease and determine 
ten (lO) years from the date of the passage 
of this ordinance. During the life of this 
ordinance the said J. K. Farley Manufactur- 
ing- Company shall at all times keep said 
scale and the portion of the alley immedi- 
ately surrounding the same in good condi- 
tion and repair and safe for public travel to 
the satisfaction of the Commissioner of 
Public Works of the City ot Chicago. 

Section 3. The rights and privileges 
hereby granted are subject to revocation by 
the Mayor in his discretion at any time. At 
the expiration of the time fixed by this ordi- 
nance for the continuance of the rights and 
privileges hereby granted or upon the termina- 
tion of said rights and privileges at any time 
by reason of revocation of the same by the 
Mayor, as aforesaid, said J. K. Farley Manu- 
facturing Company shall forthwith remove 
said scale and its appurtenances and restore 
said alley to its proper condition so that the 
portion of said alley where said scale had 
been located shall be put in the same condi- 
tion as the other parts of said alley in the 
same b!ock. 

Section 4. Before any work may be done 
under the authority of this ordinance, said 
J. K. Farley Manufacturing Company shall 
execute and deliver to the City of Chicago 
within sixty days from the date of 
the passage of this ordinance a 
good and sufficient bond with sureties to be 
approved by the Mayor in the penal sum of 
five thousand ($5,000) dollars, conditioned 
to indemnify, save and keep harmless the

age, expense, cost or liability of any kind

The Corporation Counsel submitted the 
following opinien: 

Office of the Counsel to \ 
THE Corporation, > 
December 9, 1901. ) 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago : 

Gentlemen — In compliance with an order 
passed by your Honorable Body at its regu- 
lar meeting, N®vember 18, 1901, and printed 
on page 1357 of the current Ceuncil Proceed- 
ings, directing me to submit an ©pinion to 
the City Council whether or not it has the 
right tu pass mandatory ordinances compell- 
ing the railroad companies to elevate their 
railroad tracks within the city, irrespective 
of any compromises between the city and the 
companies, and in doing so to keep all the 
public street crossings open, I have to say: 

The Supreme Court of Illinois and the 
Supreme Court of the United States uni- 
formly have upheld and given effect to the 
inherent police powers of the State to pro- 
vide for the safety of the public in so far as 
the safety of the lives and persons of the 
people were involved in the operation of rail- 
roaas. '"The requirement that compensation 
be made for private property taken for pub- 
lic use imposes no restriction upon the in- 
herent power of the State by reasonable 
regulations to protect the lives and secure 
the safety p the people." (Chicago, Bur- 
lington and Quincy Railroad Company vs. 
City of Chicago, 166 U. S., 226, quoting N. 
Y. & N. E. Railroad Company vs. Bristol, 
151 U. S., 556 (567.) This court "declared 
it to be clearly established that the inhibi- 
tions of the Constitution of the United 
States upon the impairment of the obliga- 
tions of contracts for the deprivation of 
property without due process or of the equal 



protection of the laws by the Stale are 'not 
violated by the legitimate exercise of legisla-^ 
tive power in securing the public safetyv 
health, and morals." 

"Government owes to its citizens the du^y 
of providing and preserving safe and con- 
venient highways. From this duty results 
the right ©f p,^blic control over public high- 
ways. Railroads are public highways, and 
in their relations as such to the public aye 
subject t@ legislative supervision, though the 
interests of their shareholders are private 
property. Every railroad company takes its 
right of way subject to the right of the public 
to extend the public highways and streets 
across such right of way. * * * if rail- 
roads so far as they are public highways ar6, 
like other highways, subject to legislative 
supervision, then railroad companies in their 
relations to highways and streets which in^ 
terseet their rights of way are subject to the 
control of the police power of the State— that 
power of which this court has said that 'it 
may be assumed that it is a power coexten- 
sive with self-protection, and is not inaptly 
termed the law of overruling' necessity.' * 
* * The Supreme Court of the United 
States have said; 'Whatever differences of 
opinion may exist as to the extent and boun- 
daries of the police power * * * there 
seems to be n.o doubt that it does extend to 
the protection of the lives, health and prop- 
erty of the citizens.' (Fertilizing Company 
vs. Hyde Park, 97 U. S., 659.) It has been 
held by this court in a number of cases that 
raiiroad corporations may be required to> 
fence their tracks, to put in cattle guards, to 
place upon their engines a bell, and to do 
other things for the protection of life and 
property, although their charters contained 
no such requirements. (G. & C. U. R. R^ 
Co, vs. Loomis, 13 Ills., 548; G. & C. U. R. 
R. Co. vs. Dill, 22 id., 264; O. & M. R. R. Co. 
vs. McCleiland, 25 id., 140; P. & P. U. Ry. 
Co. vs. P. & F. Ry. Co., 105 id., 110.) * * * 
Uncompensated obedience to a regulation 
enacted for the public safety under the police 
power of the State is not a taking or damag- 
ing without just compensation of private 
property or of private property affected with 
a public interest." 

Chicago and Northwestern Railway Com 
pany/vs. City of Chicago, 140 111., 309. 

The latter case quotes approvingly the 
opinion in T. P. & W. R. W. Co. vs. Deacon, 
63 Ills., 91, in which the Supreme Court said: 



December 9, ] 



1436 



[1901 



'•The State has reserved to itself the power 
to enact all police laws necessary and proper 
to secure and protect the life and property of 
the citizen. Prominent among the rights 
reserved, and which must inhere in the State, 
is the power to regulate the approaches to 
and the crossings of public highways, and 
passage through cities and villages, where 
life and property are constantly in imminent 
danger by the rapid and fearful speed of rail- 
way trains. The exercise of their franchises 
by corporations must yield to the public ex- 
igencies and the safety of the community." 

In Illinois Central Railroad Company vs. 
Willenborg, 117 Ills., 203, the point was 
made by the company that it could not be re- 
quired to comply with certain police regula- 
tions because they had been enacted years 
after the road had been built. The Court 
said : 

"This is a misapprehension of the law. The 
regulations * ^ * * are police regula- 
tions in the strict sense of those terms and 
apply with equal force to corporations whose 
tracks are already built as well as to those to 
be thereafter constructed. They have refer- 
ence to the public security both as to per- 
sons and as to property, * * * * The 
fact railroad corporations are granted exclu- 
sive franchises to conduct a business in its 
nature public must subject • them to all 
reasonable control to secure the public 
safety and welfare. It is now the settled law 
that railroad corporations are within the 
operation of all reasonable police resj-ulations ; 
otherwise there would be no security for the 
life or property of the citizen residing in the 
yicinity." 

In a more recent case involving the trade 
elevation ordinance passed by the City 
Couneil of the City of Chicago June 24, 1S9S, 
requiring the Chicago, Burlington and 
Quincy Raili-oad Company to elevate its road- 
bed and trades between certain points, the 
Supreme Court expressly recognized the 
power conferred upon the city to pass such 
an ordinance, saying: 

"The ordinance, under which the railroad 
company is required to elevate its trades at 
points where it crosses Twenty-second street 
and Lavvndale avenue, was passed under the 
powers conferred upon the City of Chicago 
by its charter. Under its charter the City ot 
Chicago has tbe power "to lay out, establish, 
open, alter, widen, extend, grade, pave, or 
otherwise improve streets, alleys, avenues. 



sidewalks, wharves, parks and public 
grounds, and vacate the same.' It also has 
thereunder the power to 'regulate the use of 
the' streets and to 'prevent and remove en- 
croachments or obstructions upon the same;' 
also 'to provide for and change the location, 
grade, and crossings of any railroad;' also 'to 
compel such railroad to raise or lower its 
tracks to conform to any grade, which may, 
at any time, be established by such city.' 
(Rev. Stat., Chap. 24, pt. 1, Art. 5, Sec. 1. 
pars. 7-10, 25, 27.) 

"Section 19 of Chapter 114 of the Revised 
Statutes, being the Act in regard to the in- 
corporation of railroads, provides that every 
corporation formed under that Act shall 
have the power 'to construct its railway 
across, along, or upon any * * * street, 
highway, * * * which the route of 
such railway shall intersect or touch; but 
such corporations shall restore the * * ^• 
street, highway, * * * ^ thus intersected 
or touched, to its former state, or to such 
state as not unneceesarily to have impaired 
its usefulness, and keep such crossing in re- 
pair; provided, * * nothing in this 
Act contained shall be construed to authorize 
* -K- * tiig construction of any railroad 
upon or across any street in any city * * ^ 
without the assent of the corporation of such 
city.' (2 Starr & Curtis Statutes, p. 1,913.") 

Chicago General Railway Company vs. 
Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad 
Company, 181 Ills., 605. 

I particularly call the attention of your 
Honorable Body to the language used by the 
court in the same case relating to subways 
and street crossings: 

'■'Municipal corporations and railroad cor- 
porations both derive their powers from the 
State. When a railroad company constructs 
its railway across the street of a city it must 
restore the street to such condition as not 
unnecessarily to impair its usefulness. If its 
crossing is so constructed as to prevent the 
passage along the street of any person or car 
or vehicle, which has tbe right to use the 
street, it does not restore it 'to such state as 
not unnecessarily to impair its usefulness.' 
So, notwithstanding the power which the 
city has over its streets, it must s® exercise 
that power in the matter of compelling rail- 
road companies to raise their tracks, as not 
to interfere with the use of the streets or 
crossings by all persons entitled thereto."

[1901 



The case of Jackson vs. City of Chicago, 
in which the Supreme Court recently j^ave 
the opiuion referred to in your Council order, 
has DOt been disposed of finally. While the 
ease involved no controversy between the city 
and the railroad company, but a question of 
damages between the city and a property 
owner only, the opinion is valuable to the 
extent that it reaffirms the position heretofore 
taken by the Supreme Court in cases where 
the railroad companies themselves were direct- 
ly concerned. The Court referred to the scheme 
for the elevation of railroad tracks in the 
City of Chicag-o as one having originated in 
the design and intention of conducing to the 
safety of life and limb of the general public 
and stated that the ordinance in question 
was passed and the scheme carried out with 
that object in purpose. It recognized and 
expressly stated that to the City of Chicago. 

u * * -x- ^a^g delegated the right to ex- 
ercise the police power of the state for the 
purpose of maintaining the streets within the 
municipality in a safe condition for the use of 
the public. The state owes to the citizen the 
duty of providing safe highways, and the 
defendant was charged with the supervision 
of its streets and the duty of keeping them in 
reasonably safe condition for the public 
travel. The dangers of grade crossings in a 
populous city are matters of general knowl- 
edge, which from their publicity and noto- 
riety, courts will take judicial notice of. 

* * 5f The purpose of the plan and ordi- 
nance in this case was the abolition of dan- 
gerous grade crossings which were a constant 
menace to life and limb, and they are within 
every definition of police ^ower, all of which 
include the prsservation of the public 
safety.. The exercise of that power is 
not subject to the provision of the con- 
stitution that compensation must be made 
for private property damaged for public use. 

* * * The question as to how grade 
crossings shall be eliminated was committed 
to the judgment of the City Council of the 
the City of Chicago. * * * in the judg- 
ment of the Council it was just as necessary 
to make the depression in the street as to 
elevate the embankment; and it determined, 
as it lawfully might, that the work should be 
carried out as provided by the ordinance. 

* * * Municipal corporations to whom are 
delegated the police powers are not liable for 
their exercise. 

Recent opinion of Illinois Supreme Court 



in Jackson vs. City of Chicago (not yet re- 
ported) . 

I am of the ©pinion, therefore, that the 
city has full power to pass mandatory ordi- 
nances compellinar the railroad companies to 
elevate their roadways in the city, wherever 
the public safety requires it to be done, and 
that in passing such ordinances, "notwith- 
standing the power which the city has over 
its streets" and repeating the language of 
the Supreme Court in the Burlington case, 
"it must so exercise that power in the matter 
of compelling railroad companies to raise 
their tracks as not to interfere with the use 
of the streets or crossings by all persons en- 
titled thereto" (C. G. R. Co. vs. C. B. & Q. 
R. R. Co., 181 Ills. 605). 

Respectfully submitted,

Corporation Goimsel. 

Which was placed on file. 



ALSO, 

The following opinion: 

Office of the Counsel to \ 
THE Corporation, >• 
December, 9, 1901. S 

To the Honorahle, the City Council, of the 
City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen— Your Honorable Body at the 
regular session of November 18, 1901, di- 
rected that the Corporation Counsel 

"Examine the ordinance granting the 
franchise to the South Side Rapid Transit 
Company, with reference to such company's 
responsibility to light the streets and alleys 
at the various intersections of its right of 
way with such streets and alleys; that he 
also consider the question of the right of the 
city under its police power to compel such 
lighting by the company; and that he report 
his findings to this Council at as early a date 
as practicable." 

There are two questions involved here: 

First. May the city compel the lighting 
by elevated railroad companies of that part 
of street intersections which lie underneath 
their tracks? 

Second. Might possible rights of the city 
in connection with the franchise under which 



December 9,] 



1438 



11901 



this particular company claims to operate be 
injurieusly atfected by such acti©n? 

First. As a pelice measure the city has 
full power to compel railroad companies 
whose tracks intersect any streets above 
grade to provide sufficient lights for that 
portion of the street underneath their tracks. 
Provision is made for the exercise of this 
pewer in Sections 1763 and 1764 of the Re- 
vised Code of Chicago, (1897). 

Second. The proper title of the company 
to which reference is made in the order of 
your Honorable Body is the South Side Ele- 
vated Railroad Company. No franchise has 
ever been granted to this company by the 
City Council. It claims the right to operate 
as successor to the Chicago and South Side 
Rapid Transit Railroad Company under ordi- 
nances of March 26, 1888, April 2, 1897 and 
April 7, 1892, (Special Ordinances of Chi- 
cago, 1898, pp. 952 et seq.). The earliest of 
the ordinances provided that the consent 
contained in the ordinance should never 
authorize any other railroad company to use 
the franchise therein granted to the Chicago 
and South Side Rapid Transit Railroad Com- 
pany. It is, however, claimed by the South 
Side Elevated Railroad Company that certain 
acts on the part of the city or its officers have 
recognized the right of the company to oper- 
ate as the successor to the original grantee of 
the franchise. This question was considered 
in an opinion rendered by the Law Depart- 
ment August 6. 1901, to the Committee of 
the City Council on Streets and Alleys 
South, in which it was held that the 
South Side Elevated Railroad Company in 
taking possession of the property of the 
Rapid Transit Company and in operating 
under the franchises granted by the ordin- 
ances of March 26, 1888, did so in defiance of 
the provisions of that ordinance, and as to 
any subsequent recognition by the city of the 
rights of the new company as the successor 
of the old company, it comld not be said with 
entire confidence that the company's claim 
was established. 

To take such a step as is contemplated in 
compelling the company to light the street 
intersections and s© take upon itself the bur- 
den of a certain outlay, would be said to add 
another to those aets of recognition under 
which alone the company claims any right. 

I submit that it is for the Council to decide 
whether it wishes to pursue such a course 
■until such time as the relations between 



the city and the company in question have^ 
been established on a definite basis. ' ■ 

Yours respectfully, 

Charles M. Walker. 

Corporation Counsel.

The follawing communication: 

Office of the Counsel to | 
THE Corporation. V 
December 9, 1901. ) , 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The Boiler Inspector has re- 
cently raised the question whether he is enti- 
tled to inspect the boilers used on locomotives. 

The ordinance governing the inspection of 
steam boilers (Council Proceedings 1897-1898, 
p. 1208) is not limited in its terms to any kind 
of boiler, whether stationary or movable. 
There are, however, certain provisions con- 
tained in this ordinance which might possi- 
bly be construed as limiting the ordinance to 
the inspection of stationary boilers. Much 
expensive and doubtful litigation might be 
avoided if the ordinance were recast so that 
it would embrace without ambiguity the pres- 
ent views of your honorable body on the 
subject. 

I would respectfully ask that this commu- 
nication be referred to the appropriate com- 
mittee for its consideration and report. 

Respectfully, 

Charles M. Walker, 

Corporation Counsel. 

Which was referred to the Committee on 
Judiciary.

To the Honorable^ the Mayor and the City Coufi-

Gentlemen— Referring to my commu- 
nication of November 18, 1901, in which 
statement is made that the actual cost of 
completing Section "D," Lawrence avenue 
intercepting sewer, is sixty-six (|66) dollars 
per foot, I am not taking into consideration 
any unforeseen diflSculties or delays, and that 
the estimate of the department in wnich the 
work can be done is seventy (170) dollars per 
foot. I also wish to call your attention to 
the fact that on the day labor work on Sec- 
tions "G'' and "H," which will also be the 
case on Section ''D," the cost of engineering 
superintendence, which amounts to between 
four (4) and six (6) per cent, under contract, 
is charged directly to the work. Therefore, 
the actual cost of completing Section "D," 
eliminating charge for engineering superin- 
tendence, would be lower than the lowest 
bid.

Hon. F. W. Blocki, Commissioner of Fuhlie- 
Works : 

Dear Sir— Referring to the attached bills 
and the statements made by the bookkeepeir- 
of the Department of Public Works, show- 
ing that there is a charge of $440.96, exceed- 
ing the appropriation, I beg to state that afr 
the time the appropriation was made, the 
amount asked for was considered suffi.cieBt„ 
During the year, however, pipe ordered hy 
the City Council was laid which brings the- 
charges of the Rogers Park Company up to* 
the amount of the voucher, necessitating the 
transfer of $440.96. This amount I respect- 
fully recommend be transferred from th& 
Water Pipe Extension Repair Fund, which 
is in a very good condition and can easily 
stand the transfer. 

Requesting that you will kindly refer this 
matter to the City Council for proper action, 
I am. 

Yours truly,

water rate ordinance (April 29, 1901), sub- 
mitted a report recommending the passage 
of an accompanying order. 

Aid. Mavor moved that the report be 
deferred and published. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the report: 

Chicago, December 9th, 1901. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City oj 
Chicago in Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Finance, to whom was 
referred an ordinance changing Section 24 of 
the ordinance governing water rates, having 
had the same under advisement, beg leave to 
report and recommend that the ordinance 
submitted be placed on file and the passage 
of the following order in lieu thereof. 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works be and he is hereby (directed to 
remit and cancel all water rates (up to and 
including the present term) with which the 
Armour Mission stands charged upon the 
books of the Citv Water Department. This 
action is taken upon the recommendation of 
a sub-committee attached hereto. 

Wm. Mayor, 

Chairman. 



To the Honorable, the Committee on Finance 
of the City Council of Chicago : 

Gentlemen — Your sub-committee, to 
which was referred the proposed ordinance 
in connection with a claim of the Armour 
Mission for a rebate of water taxes, having 
had the same under advisement, beg leave to 
report as follows : 

We have looked upon the matter referred 
to us, in the first instance with a view of as- 
certaining the nature and scope of the insti- 
tution in question, so as to determine 
whether it can reas®nably be classed among 
those mentioned in Section 24 of the Water 
Ordinance. We are of opinion that the Ar- 
mour Mission, which is organized for the 
purpose of the improvement, in a moral and 
educational sense, of a large number of 
children who by reason of their rearing and 
surroundings are much in need of such aid, 
is a worthy and deserving charity. For fur- 
ther particulars concerning the scope of the 
work of the Armour Mission your sub-com- 
mittee respectfully refers to a letter of Ar- 



mour & Company, dated December 3, 1901, 
which is hereto attached and made a part of 
1 his report. We believe that this letter 
shows the charity in question to be 
engaged in laudable work, tending towards the 
bettering of the condition, physically, men- 
tally and morally, ©f the young population of 
our crowded districts. We feel satisfied that 
work of this character should be encouraged 
in every conceivable manner. We believe 
that whatever the city may contribute towards 
a charity of that kind will be fully made up 
in savings on police force and maintenance of 
penal institutions. 

We have als© ascertained that all of the 
real estate mentioned in the report of the 
Superintendent of the Water Department is 
the property of the Armour Mission, and we 
respectfully refer to an affidavit which is 
hereto attached and made a part of this 
report, for further particulars as to the 
ownership of the property. It is also ap- 
parent that the institution in question is not 
alone not one for pecuniary gain or profit^ 
but that from its very inception it has had 
deficits amounting to many thousand of dol- 
lars. The accompanying letter of Armour & 
Company, dated November 18, 1901, which is 
made a part of this report, is referred to for 
particulars upon that score. In other words^ 
your Committee finds that the institution in 
question is beyond doubt one of those which 
is included in the exemptions contained in 
Section 24 above referred to. The question 
whether the terms of this section of the 
ordinance will authorize the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works to exempt prop- 
erty other than that which is actually 
used for housing the charity in question is 
a more diflScult one. The reason for any 
exemption of this character, and the only 
logical reason, is that institutions of a char- 
itable and educational nature perform a 
certain public function, and that therefore it 
would be unjust and illogical for the public 
to levy taxes against an institution of that 
character. If we take as an instance an 
orphan asylum, the reason for a rule of this 
kind can be well illustrated The care of 
orphans as well as the care ©f the poor and 
the insane is clearly a public function. It is 
one of those duties for the exercise of which 
governme ts are established, and as a matter 
of fact in almost every civilized community 
orphan asylums exist as public institu- 
tions. Yet, neither the State ®f Illi- 
nois, nor the county nor the City of 



December 9,1 



1472 



[1901 



Chicago has made any provision for 
the care of those who are deprived of their 
natural guardians by death. Thus the care 
of orphans is exclusively in the charge of 
private charities maintained out of private 
funds, and in this manner churches and 
private charitable associations are made to 
perform a public function. For the munic- 
ipal government under those circumstances 
to place a burden upon such private charities 
in the shape of a water tax orother imposi- 
tion is in our opinion anomalous and unten- 
able. If it were possible, such institutions 
should be endowed with public funds. As 
tnis is not feasible, at least so far as the City 
of Chicago is concerned, the least that can 
be expected of the municipality is that it 
will furnish free to such institutions what- 
ever is under the control of the city — in this 
instance, water. 

What has been said of the one class of 
charities applies with greater or less force to 
every charity which does not serve a denomi- 
national religious purpose. Who will ques- 
tion that the work of the Armour' Mission, 
which has a tendency to prevent the chil- 
dren of the crowded and tenement districts 
of this city from degenerating into loafers 
and criminals, is of a public nature and de- 
serving of public support. Whatever reason 
there is in exempting the building used for 
such a charity from the payment of water 
taxes applies with equal force to any build- 
ing out of which such a charity obtains its 
revenues. We believe, more especially with 
the insufficient finances of the city in view, 
preventing the municipality from perform- 
ing a great many functions, that private 
charity thus supplying the place ©f the city, 
should be encouraged in every conceivable 
manner rather than discouraged, and we be- 
lieve that the least that the city can do as an 
acknowledgement of the public spirit of the 
Armour family in devoting many millions to a 
deserving charity is to exempt the property in 
which these millions are invested from the 
payment of water rates. While the nominal 
amount involved in these bills is a large one, 
we submit for consideration of the committee 
that the fact that no bills for water for the 
premises in question were ever presented 
tends to show that it was originally intended 
that the same should be freed from water 
charges. The people representing the Armour 
Mission claim that this is so by virtue of a 
specific agreement made between them and 
the then Mayor of Chicago (Cregier) at the 



time the real estate was purchased. Of 
course, such an agreement would not be 
binding upon the city, but color is lent to it 
by the fact that the city has for so many 
years foregone the collection of the water 
rates. However that may be, we are of opin- 
ion that the bills should be rebated. Your 
sub-committee has attempted to arrive at 
some general rule to guide the Commissioner 
of Public Works in matters of this kind 
hereafter; but after mature consideration, we 
have come to the conclusion that it would be 
unwise to establish any such general rule, and 
that wherever exemptions of this kind are to 
be granted, it should be done by the' action of 
the City Council iu each individual case, so 
that the merits or otherwise of the particular 
charity in question may be investigated. 

Your sub-committee recommends that the 
committee, in its report to the Council, rec- 
ommend the placing on file of the ordinance 
under consideration, and that you recommend 
for passage the following order: 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works be and he is hereby directed to 
remit and cancel all water rates (up to and 
including the present term) with which the 
Armour Mission stands charged upon the 
books of the City Water Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Julius Goldzier, 
Fraxk I. Bennett, 

Suh-Co7nmHtee. 



December 3rd, 1901. 
Hon. Julius Goldzier. Chairman of Sah-Com- 
■mittee of Finance Committee of City Council^ 
Chicago. . 

Dear Sir— In connection with our recent 
conference with your Committee, regarding 
the charitable, educational and religious 
work of the Armour Mission, I desire to pre- 
sent for your consideration a somewhat more 
definite statement than was then made. 

The Armour Mission is now, and has been 
for many pears, the center of charitable, 
educational and religious work in a thickly 
settled district, where opportunities for ex- 
tending aid to the sick and needy probably 
exceed those existing elsewhere in the city. 
A regular minister is provided, who holds 
church services of a strictly undenomina- 
tional character continuously throughout the 



December 9, J -L-J 

year. Sunday services are held in the audi- 
torium of the mission, when a seating capacity 
of about 2,250 is nearly always fully occu- 
pied. These services are held morning and 
evening, and during the afternoon the Sunday 
school, wholly recruited from the contiguous 
territory, with an attendance of about 1,700 
to 2,000, is held. There are present upon 
these occasions about one hundred teachers, 
whose interest in their respective classes is* 
maintained by regular visitation upon the 
families of the poorer scholars, to whom fre- 
quent aid in numerous ways is extended. 

Annual picnics and outings, with an at- 
tendance of from 2,500 to 3,000, have, for 
many years, been provided, at which cus- 
tomary refreshments and transportation to 
and from the grounds, generally about fifty 
miles from Chicago, are furnished. 

There are fifteen to twenty visitors who 
ascertain the necessities of the sick in the 
extensive 'erritory tributary to the Mission, 
and assistance of a substantial character is 
being constantly rendered, whereby much 
destitution and distress are alleviated. 

In order that the boys of the district may 
be kept as much as possible from the streets, 
entertainments of many kinds are provided. 
A drill corps of from 100 to 125 beys have 
free use of the Mission Hall, which is warmed 
and lighted three nights each week. These 
meetings show the most gratifying results, 
and these boys are given each year a summer 
excursion, lasting about ten days, during 
which lime they are accompanied by careiul 
and competent persons, and provided with 
everything calculated for their enjoyment. 

In addition to the above, regular encamp- 
ments have been held for many years, at 
which for the first two weeks a large number 
of the girls are taken some fifty miles into 
the country, and for the succeeding two 
weeks an equal number of boys occupy the 
grounds when vacated by the girls, and 
during each of these separate encampments 
they are cared for by competent persons, and 
are fed and entertained, greatly to the advan- 
tage of their health and general improve- 
ment. 

Sociables or monthly gatherings in the 
warm and well equipped rooms of the mission 
are regularly held, at which the teachers of 
the Sunday school are in att ndance, and 
these have a marked tendency to maintain 
enthusiasm and interest in the locality con- 



73 11901 

tiguous to the work. Sewing circles, at 
which very many of the parents of the chil- 
dren are regular attendants, are held twice 
each week. 

A free library of some 16,000 volumes is al- 
ways at the disposal of those who wish to 
consult it, and in a warm, well furnished and 
comfortable apartment all the periodicals 
may be continually found. Twice in each 
week gymnastic exercises are provided, at 
one of which meetings girls are instructed, 
and at the other competent teachers are pro- 
vided for the boys. The attendance at the 
meetings is from fifty to eighty upon each 
occasion. 

Christmas is made a special period of enter- 
tainment and enjoyment for all, and upon the 
morning and evening of each Christmas day 
the attendance runs to about 2,500. Gifts are 
provided for every one, and, in addition to 
these customary evidences of festivity, this 
season is especially selected for the distribu- 
tion of shoes and other necessities to many of 
the boys and girls in attendance, requiring 
special aid in this way. 

To all of the above must be added the free 
kindergarten school, which is continually in 
daily operation and at which 175 to 200 chil- 
dren attend. These children, of all creeds 
and colors, from two to six years of age, are 
in charge of some fifteen trained teachers, 
and, being relieved of care, very many of the 
mothers thereby are enabled to earn their 
living in various ways. 

As each birthday of these children are

Armour Mission is unique in many ways, 
being absolutely unseetarian, and everything 
that is done in the various departments, of 
which a partial statement is here made, is 
absolutely free of all charge to the people of 
Chicago. 

It is respectfully submitted, therefore, that 
our continuous work for many years in this 
field of educational, religious and charitable 
work entitles us to favorable consideration 
from the municipal authorities of the city, in 
which we co-operate for the improvement of 
the physical and moral condition of those 
whose necessities warrant all possible effort 
of this character. 

Very truly yours, 

Armour Mission. 

F. U. Smith, 

Secretary.

Hon. Julius Goldzier, Chamher of Commerce 
Buildi7ig, Chicago: 

Dear Sir— Referring to my statement this 
morning to your committee that no bill had 
ever been rendered by the City of Chicago 
for water used by the Armour Mission or Ar- 
mour Institute, I beg to inform you that I 
have given the matter a thorough investi- 
gation, and I am assured by Mr. Frederick U. 
Smith, the Secretary of the Armour Mission, 
that for the past fourteen years, during 
which time he has been in charge of such 
matters, he has never had a bill presented to 
him nor has he ever heard of one being 
rendered to anybody. 

Yours truly, 

Geo. J. Brine. 



November 18th, 1901. 
JImi. Julius Goldzier, Hon. Frank I. Bennett. 
Sub- Committee of Finance Committee of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— In the matter of rebating of 
water taxes on the property owned by the 
Armour Mission of this city, at your reques; 
we beg to submit the following facts: 

The Armour Mission is a legally organized 
corporation having for its object the estab- 
lishment and maintenance of a mission 
church and school under the provisions of the 



will of the of the late Joseph F. Armour 
who bequeathed to trustees, named therein, 
the sum of one hundred thousand dollars to 
be held, invested and used in trust to build 
aud maintain in the City of Chicago, a mis- 
sion church and school to be located in some 
thickly settled locality where in the opinion 
of the trustees it would be most useful; and 
that it should be an institution of purely 
public charity, to be devoted to good learn- 
ing and sound morals. 

The Armour Institute was afterwards built 
and fully equipped by the late Philip D. 
Armour and given to the Armour Mission. 
This building was erected upon land pur- 
chased by him from the City of Chicago, 
which land, prior to the erection of the Ar- 
mour Institute building, had been presented 
as a free gift by him to the Armour Mission. 

The above statement is made in order that 
no misapprehension may arise as to the 
status of the Armour Institute in its relation 
to the Armour Mission, the former being the 
exclusive property of the latter corporation. 

The large investments personally made by 
Mr. Philip D. Armour in behalf of the Ar- 
mour Mission, all of which were deeded by 
him to it as a free gift before his death, re- 
sulted from the provisions contained in the 
will of his brother, Joseph F. Armour, 
whereby the sum of one hundred thousand 
dollars was bequeathed by him for the estab- 
lishment of the Armour Mission. From this 
comparatively small beginning has grown an 
institution to which Mr. Philip D. Armour 
had given, prior to his death, very large 
sums of money, which since his death have 
been largely added to by living members of 
his family. 

Notwithstanding these gifts and endow- 
ments, amounting now to about five millions 
of dollars, expenses have always exceeded 
receipts from all sources, as maybe seen from 
the following figures showing the actual an- 
nual deficits for the years named, which were 
met by additional payments by Mr. Philip D. 
Armour during his lifetime, and, since his 
death, are being paid by his family: 

1895. Amount of deficit after re- 

ceipts from all sources $44,493 35 

1896. Amount of deficit after re- 

ceipts from all sources. , . 54,607 09 

1897. Ameunt of deficit after re- 

ceipts from all sources 39,870 43 

1S98. Amount of deficit after re- 
ceipts from all sources. .. 39,362 20

1901. Amount of deficit after re- 

ceipts from all sources. . . 30,555 52 

1309,393 13 

You will note from this tabulated state- 
ment that this institution has been a source 
of heavy annual outlay to Mr. Armour and 
his family ever since it assumed a prominent 
place among the charitable institutions of 
Chicago, and, in view of the fact of our 
renewed request that the water taxes be re- 
bated, we append hereto the ofHcial affidavit 
of the Secretary of the Armour Mission, and 
we also beg to state that the books and papers 
of the corporation are subject to your exam- 
ination for the verification of the above 
figures. 

We may add to the above that when the 
Armour Mission was built there was a thor- 
ough understanding between Mr. Armour 
and the municipal authorities that no charge 
for water should be made, and from that 
date, and through all subsequent administra- 
tions, no attempt was ever made, until 
recently, to collect such taxes. As you are 
doubtless aware, our request for the rebate 
of these water taxes was considered by your 
Committee shortly before it adjourned for 
the summer vacation of the present year and 
action favorable to our request was taken, 
we were informed, by unanimous vote. The 
order in Council was not, however, passed 
before adjournment, although it was in prep- 
aration. 

On behalf of the Armour Mission, we re- 
spectfully request your favorable action upon 
this renewal of our application, and remain, 

Y©urs truly, 

Armour & Co., 

Geo. J. Brine.

with the equipment thereof, is also the prop- 
erty of the Armour Mission.

ning from 1895 to 1901, both- inclusive, there 
has been a total deficit over and above all 
receipts from all sources amounting to |309,- 
393.13, which sum has been paid in annual 
payments, by the late Philip D. Armour, and, 
since his death, by his family, and that this 
sum has been additional to all bequests of 
gifts made by them to the said Armour Mis- 
sion or to said Armour Institute owned by 
the said Armour Mission.

The following is the report as concurred in : 

Chicago, November 4, 1901. 

To Vie Honorable Mayor and City Council of 
the City of Chicago : 

Your Special Committee, appointed for the 
purpose of memorializing Congress on the 
subject of anarchy, suggesting legislation 
tending to wipe out such evil, begs leave to 
submit the following report; 

To the Seriate and House of Representatives^ in 
Cotigress Assembled: 

In view of the national calamity which has 
removed from the head of our government its 
chief executive, and thereby caused uni- 
versal grief and general alarm at a 
time when our land was prosperous 
and our people at peace with all nations, 
we, the Mayor and City Council of 
the City of Chicago, as the cx)rporate repre- 
sentatives of a cosmopolitan population, 
would give expression to the sentiment that 
pervades the public mind, both in heartfelt 
sorrow and also in righteous indignation over 
the wicked act that has caused such a 
calamity. 

1. We sympathize with the stricken widow 
of President McKinley, so ruthlessly deprived 
of a devoted husband ; with those engaged in 
the discharge of official duties, so unneces- 
sarily disturbed in their harmonious co- 
operation with a wise and manly chief; with 
the seventy- six millions of American people 
who grieve over the deplorable treatment of 
one of their fellow citizens whom they had 
promoted to the presidency, and with all the 
sympathizing and civilized nations of the 
world we deprecate the loss of our respected 
fellow citizen whose virtues as a man, whose 
leadership as a faithful executive officer and 
whose wisdom in the securing and main- 



tenance of our general prosperity merit our 
sincere commendation. 

2. Together with the unanimous voice of 
the press, the bar, the forum and the pulpit, 
we condemn and stamp as infamous the 
assassination of our beloved president. 

As citizens of a free republic, where law is 
of the people's making and where the ballot 
is accessible to all, we cannot but deplore 
the inconsistency that a young man, ignorant 
and vainglorious, should have believed him- 
self called upon to right imaginary wrongs, 
and thus thwart the will of a majority of the 
intelligent American citizens by cowardly 
grasping the power to undo what a great 
nation had done through the palladium of its 
political liberty. 

3. With due regard to our sense of public 
responsibility, we should net pass over an 
occurrence so terrible as the assassination of 
a Chief Executive without serious reflection. 
The fact that the assassin calls himself an 
anarchist and has associated with persons 
designing evil against our institutions, and 
thus been urged to the commission of his 
crime by anarchistic speakers, by inflam- 
matory literature and agitations against ex- 
isting of society, should suggest the necessity 
for legislation having for its purpose the 
effectual stamping out of such false doctrines, 
so inimical to our form of government. 

4. We request the Congress of the United 
States to enact laws that will check an- 
archistic agitation, by making it a criminal 
offense to proclaim throagh the press or from 
the platform those anarchistic principles^ 
tending to create a spirit of unrest in 
the minds ®f those individuals susceptible of 
such destructive doctrines, fostering hatred 
towards those high in public places, resulting 
eventually in the commission of such heinous 
crimes as illustrated by the assassination of 
our respected President. An attempt to take 
the life of the President or Vice-President of 
the United States should be punishable by 
the penalty of deatb. We would, therefore^ 
request Congress to take steps to accomplish 
such purpose, either by proposed amendment 
to the Constitution, making such an act 
treasonable, or by other legislation by Con- 
gress, or by urging the several states to 
enact appropriate legislation providing for 
the infliction of the death penalty for such 
cases, 

5. There will always be disease, discontent

[1901 



and violence; there will always be cranks 
and madmen. We can not expect to legislate 
all evil out of existence, nor to stamp out 
entirely anarchy and ruffianism by curbing 
the fredom of public speech, or by censor- 
ship of the press. Slander and abuse of those 
in office may indeed be made punishable with 
suppression, but such suppression will be most 
effectually accomplished by the frown and 
condemnation of a public sentiment. Let all 
our people be educated t® an intelligent citi- 
zenship, to habits ©f cleanliness and thrift. 
Let our schools utilize the forenoon of every 
national holiday with public exercises of a 
patriotic character. Let the pulpit, the 
lyceum and the press join in inculcating a 
love of country and an intelligent apprecia- 
tion of our system of government.

To tTie Honorable^ the City Council of tJie City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— September 23, 1901, in a 



December 16,] 



1508 



11901 



message to your Hoaorable Body, I took 
occasion to direct your attention to certain 
provisions ©f the revenue law of the State 
and to recommend the appointment of a 
special committee to urge their better enforce- 
ment. The particular provisions of the 
revenue law referred to then were the provi- 
sions relating to the subject of the assessment 
for taxation of the capital stock of corpora- 
tions. With the action taken by the Coun- 
cil pursuant to said message and with what 
has been done by the spectal committee ap- 
pointed pursuant to a resolution of the Coun- 
cil you are, no doubt, familiar. 

I now deem it my duty to direct the 
attention of the Council to the provisions 
of the revenue law, touching the assess- 
ment and taxation of railroad property within 
the limits of the city and to make certain 
recommendations as to the course which 
should be pursued by the city to secure their 
enforcement. 

For the purpose of assessment, that is to 
say valuation for taxation, the revenue law 
divides railroad property into four classes; 
which classes the law denominates: First, 
"Railroad Track;" second, "Rolling Stock;" 
third, "Capital Stock, including the fran- 
chise;" fourth, "Personal property and real 
estate other than rolling stock and railroad 
track." 

The law vests in the local assessors the sole 
and exclusive power to value for taxation the 
fourth class, and vests in the State Board of 
Equalization the sole and exclusive power to 
value for taxation the first, second and third 
classes. 

The first class, denominated in the law 
"Railroad Track," under decisions of the 
Supreme Court defining the meaning of the 
term "railroad track," is a most compre- 
hensive class. It includes not merely the 
right of way, strictly so called, limited by the 
Railroad Act of 1872 to a strip of land not 
exceeding one hundred feet in width, and 
the superstructure of main track built thereon, 
but includes also the great terminal facilities of 
railroads in this city consisting ef side tracks, 
switch tracks, depots, shops, and other build- 
ings, together with the land on which such 
tracks and buildings are constructed. 

Under the law, as declared by the Supreme 
Court, there can be no doubt that the State 
Board of Equalization and not the local as- 
sessors are charged with the duty of valuing 



these terminal facilities, including the land, 
for taxation. But the question arises, when 
the value of the land and of the super- 
structures of tracks and buildings which con- 
stitute these terminal facilities is ascertained 
and fixed by the State Board, are not such 
values to be credited to the City of Chicago, 
in whose limits they lie, as a basis f©r loeal 
taxation, just exactly as the value placed by 
the local assessors upon the house and lot of 
an individual located in the city limits must 
be credited to the City of Chicago as a basis 
for local taxation. 

The law expressly provides that the value 
placed by the State Board upon the side or 
second track and all turnouts and all station 
houses, depots, machine shops, or other 
buildings belonging to a railroad, shall be 
credited as a basis for local taxation to the 
county, town, village, district, or city in 
which they are located. The contention of 
the railroad companies is, however, and 
the practice of the State Board conforms to 
this contention, that under the law the city 
is entitled only to the value of side and 
switch tracks and buildings considered as 
structures suspended in the air, resting on 
nothing. Their contention is that the value 
of the lana underlying and appurtenant to a 
side or switch track or depot or other build- 
ing located in the city— even though the 
track or building may be located half a mile 
or a mile from the main track— should be 
added to the value of the land underlying and 
appurtenant to the main track, and conse- 
quently be distributed for taxation to the 
several counties, towns, villages, districts, and 
cities in the State in the, proportion that the 
length of the main track in such county, 
town, village, district ©r city bears to the 
whole length of the road in this State. 

This contention of the railroads and this 
practice of the State Board, discriminating 
as it does between tracks and buildings and 
the land on which they rest, find no support 
either in the revenue law or in any decision 
of the Supreme Court; but on the contrary 
the Supreme Court, in an opinion rendered 
as early as March 21, 1881, and again in an 
opinion rendered as late as June 13, 1895, 
clearly expressed the view that the value of 
railroad terminals, including therein the 
value of the underlying and appurtenant land 
as well as the value of the superstructures of 
side and switch tracks, shops, depots and 
other buildings, should accrue to the county, 



December 16, J 



1509 



[1901 



town, village, district or city in which such 
land and superstructures are located. 

This contention of the railroads and this 
practice of the State Board override the con- 
stitution of the State, because under it taxa- 
ble property is practically withdrawn from 
the local taxing power, and the remaining 
taxable property is thereby subjected to taxes 
which, because of such withdrawal, cannot 
be uniform. 

Under such contention and practice, when 
a railroad company purchases land in this 
city and puts a switch track on it, such land 
is practically lifted out ©f the city, so far as 
taxing it is concerned. 

Whatever additional value is given to a 
piece of land acquired by a railroad company 
by reason of its becoming a part of the entire 
plant of the railroad company, is assessable 
only as capital stock ; aud it is this additional 
value alone, arising solely from the use of 
the land that is properly distributable through 
the State. Since 1877, however, the State 
Board has been unable to find any capital 
stock of railroad companies to assess. 

In view of the foregoing considerations, I 
respectfully recommend that a demand fee 
made upon the State Board of Equalization 
to include in its valuation of the side or sec- 
ond track and all turnouts, and all station 
houses, depots, machine shops, or other build- 
ings in the city of Chicago belonging to a 
railroad, the value of the land underlying and 
appurtenant to such tracks and buildings, 
and that, as the State Board of Equalization 
is about to adjourn, tne resolution accompa-

Mayor's Oppicb, \ 
December 16, 1901. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Cotmcil, of the City 
of Chicago : 

Gentlemen— I have long believed that the 
Bureau of Water could, with benefit to the 
public service, be removed from the control 
of the Department of Public Works and 
constitute an independent principal depart- 
ment of the city. The great development of 
the water works system, its connection with 
the operations of the Sanitary District and 
its paramount importance to our citizens, 
alike demand and justify this change. 

I have had prepared and now present to 
your Honorable Body an ordinance establish- 
ing the Department of Water. I respectfully 
recommend that this ordinance be referred 
to the Judiciary Committee for its considera- 
tion and report. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor.

Mayor's Office, ) 
December 16th, 1901. S 

To the HonoraUe, the City Council, of the 
City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen— April 8, 1897, your Honorable 
Body passed an ordinance known as "The 
Revised Code of Chicago." Since its passage 
this code has served a useful purpose, but it 
has become a serious question whether there 
should not now be made a complete revision 
up to date of all the existing ordinances of 
the City of Chicago. 

The present code is in many ways behind 
the times. It leaves in force all general 
ordinances or parts thereof not in conflict or 
inconsistent with its own provisions. This in 
itself is a fruitful source of confusion, for 
no one can be sure that he has read the last 
word on any topic in the Code unless he has 
also considered whatever previous ordinances 
may have been passed not inconsistent 
with the code's provisions. The new Code 
should stand complete in itself unaided by 
such doubtful support. Moreover, since 
April 11, 1897, many far reaching amend- 
ments to the Code have been passed by your 
honorable body. Some of these stand to-day 



as substitutes for whole chapters in the Code 
of 1897, while other ordinances have been 
passed which must be read, as it were, in 
parallel columns with the Code, in order to 
ascertain what the present status of the larr 
of the City on the particular subject may be. 
While the needed revision could and should 
be made by the Corporation Counsel, its pub- 
lication w©uld nevertheless necessarily entail 
a certain expense which should be provided 
for in the next appropriation bill. 

I therefore recommend that this communi- 
cation be referred to the Committee on Fi- 
nance for such action and report as it may, 
after due consideration, see fit to make. 
Respectfully, yours, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor.

To the Jlonorahle, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— I transmit herewith a com- 
munication from Melville G. Holding, City 
Oil Inspector, in regard to compensation to 
be paid his deputies, and would recommend 
its reference to the Finance Committee for 
suitable action. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 



Office of Inspector of Oils, ) 
Chicago, December 12, 1901. f 

To the Honorable William Mavor, Chairman, 
and Members of Finance Committee, City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen— I have the honor t® call your 
attention to Section 1353 of the Revised Code 
pertaining to the office of Oil Inspector, and 
I beg leave to request that some things con- 
nected therewith be changed as follows: 

First. By the said ordinance this office is 
authorized to appoint three deputies at the 
salaries of $150, $80 and $75 per month, re- 
spectively. In view of the large amount of 
work required to be done, and the fact that our 



December 10, | 



1514 



[1901 



depots and places of inspection are scattered 
oyer all sections of the city, the force pro- 
vided for by the ordinance is insufficient, and 
two additional men should be allowed this 
office, In order that a prompt and proper in- 
spection of the oils arriving; In the city shall 
be made according to the intent of the law 
creating the office. 

Second. In view of the hours put in by 
the help in this office and the experience and 
knowledge required for the work, the salaries 
of two of the said inspectors, $75.00 and $80.00 
per month, are inadequate for the services 
performed. I would request the ordinance be 
changed to cover the above, and such action be 
taken as shall give force and effect to these 
requests, and that the pay of the two inspec- 
tors be raised to the sum of $100.00 per month 
each, and that the two additional inspectors 
receive the sums of 183.33 and $75.00, respec- 
tively. In view of the fact that the inspectors 
are required to be on hand for work as early 
as 6.30 o'clock in the morning, their work 
continuing during the entire day, I feel that 
the amounts above named will be no more 
than just compensation for the work per- 
formed. 

Trusting that both requests made herein 
may receive y®ur favorable attention, I am, 
Yours, very respectfully, 

M. G. Holding, 
City Oil Inspector.

The following communication : 

Mayor's Office, ) 
December 16th, 1901. ) 

, To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— I submit you herewith forty- 



15 

seven ordinances, prepared by the Law De" 
parrment of the Board of Local Improve- 
ments, for new assessments to cover the un- 
paid cost of former assessments which were 
defeated upon a technicality; namely, that 
the ordinance provided that the curbstones 
should be firmly bedded upon flat stones, but 
did not describe the size or quality nor 
specify the number of said flat stones. The 
Supreme Court has decided that the city not 
only may, but that it is its duty, in such 
cases, to spread a new assessment, and that 
no property owner who has been benefited by 
the making of an im^provement can, on such 
technicalities, ultimately escape the payment 
of his fair share of the cost thereof. A test 
case involving these questions has just been 
decided in favor of the city by Judge Carter. 

A special emergency exists for the imme- 
diate passage of these ordinances, to-wit: 
That a rule of Court has been entered in these 
cases requiring the city to file its supple- 
mental petitions by the 26th inst., and even 
if these ordinances are passed to-night the 
time will be none too long for drawing the 
petitions and taking theother necessary steps 
preliminary to filing the petitions in Court. 
I therefore recommend that the rules be sus- 
pended and these ordinances be passed with 
out reference to a committee. 
Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Minwegen moved that the ordinances 
be taken up for consideration. 

So ordered.
